Mountain Biking/Munda Biddi Trail
Munda Biddi means "path through the forest" in the local Nyoongar language. Predominantly a gentle cycling trail, it is made up of bush tracks, firebreaks and old railway formations and begins in Mundaring.
The “Waterous Loop” starts at Lake Navarino Forest Park and meanders through the rolling hills of the Darling Scarp. This 63km signposted loop is long but far from technical and a pleasant day out cycling.
For more information about the Mundi Bindi Trail visit the website www.mundabiddi.org.au
There are a number of bushwalks in and around the resort that can be explored and enjoyed by everyone and part of the old Bibbulmun Track is still in existence and has been reopened for public use as part of the Munda Biddi Trail.

Fishing, Fly Fishing and Marroning
While staying at Lake Navarino Forest Park, why not try your hand at fly fishing for Trout. Not only for the fishing elite, fly fishing is simple to learn and an effective and exciting way of taking a variety of fish.
Lake Navarino holds good numbers of Rainbow Trout, as well as many smaller Redfin Perch, all of which readily take flies. Trout fishing is at its best from the start of the season, September 1st, until the water starts to warm up with the onset of summer. The lake has also been stocked with freshwater marron and the gentle sloping shores of the lake make for very relaxing fishing.
Trout fishing season is from the 1st September each year through to 30th June. Not only can you fish at Lake Navarino, the Murray River, Drakesbrook Weir and Lake Brockman are all 10 - 30 minutes from here making Lake Navarino Forest Resort the ideal base to have that fishing holiday.
Fishing is permitted during the various gazetted seasons and licenses are required. Information on fishing and licenses can be obtained from any Western Australian Office of Fisheries or Australia Post.
