Being active

Being active is an important part of the lifestyle for many Shire of Mundaring residents.

You can play, or be part of, organised sports; ride or hike on trails; take the kids to skate parks and dirt jumps; and swim at Lake Leschenaultia or one of our aquatic centres.

There are also many open spaces where you can take part in, and enjoy, activities in the shire.
