Great for a walk. If you get there early in the morning you are likely to meet up with the local wildlife. Great for family and friends
My partner and I parked the car here after a day of exploring the city. We walked along the paths enjoying the sun. He stopped at a sandy spot near the waters edge & suprised me by proposing! This will always be a special place to us
I loved the view from here, the quiet so close to the city and the space to walk and spot kangaroos. I disliked the fact that if you parked your car within cooee of this place you can almost guarantee it will be broken into or stolen. Catch the bus an walk.
No many people knows Heirisson Island. I think this is the reason because is so peacefull. It s an amazing park, where kangaroos lives in the nature. Is in the middle of the city.

This is an island in the Swan River, within sight of the city skyline. It is a beautiful oasis of calm. The best time to visit is in the evening before dark, when the rangers come to feed the kangaroos. There are around half a dozen of them, roaming free on their own part of the island and they don't... More
There are two sides to Heirsson. The west and east of the highway. There is a link tunnel under the highway between the two. On the west there are the kangaroos and on the right are the facilities. The west is a must visit! The kangaroos are so tame and are happy for a pat and a photo! It is... More
