Public access to Lake Leschenaultia is assessed on a regular basis. As of the end of January 2023, the Shire is undertaking an independent review of closure days based on the current Fire Danger Rating System. Until this review is complete, the higher risk tolerance of nearby state parks will be adopted. When the state parks of John Forrest, Greenmount and Walyunga National Parks are open, the lake will also be open.

Keep up to date with lake closures via the Lake Leschenaultia Facebook page.
