The Perry Lakes Reserve is a nature reserve located approximately 7 kilometres west of the capital city of Western Australia, Perth. There are two lakes within the reserve, East Lake and West Lake, which make up about 12.6 hectares total. In 1962, the area was landscaped in conjunction with the opening of Perry Lakes Stadium for the British Empire and Commonwealth Games. Australian Scout Jamboree have been held twice in the parkland during the summers of 1979 and 1995. The sporting complex was demolished in 2011, in order to make way for housing development.
