This was a nice break in our journey from Perth to Margaret River. Good walk around the swamp and on boardwalks into the middle, including a bird hide. Good bird sightings. Do not confuse it with the Wildlife Park which is across the road and...More

Big swamp wildlife park is good for families with large areas to feed animals & a large park for children. Also a nice sitting area for parents to have coffee. Need more staff on cash registers in busy periods. Nice day out.

This is a very nice (free walk) that goes around restored (former gravel pits) ponds. The ponds are teeming with birds and I saw (first time) a long-necked turtle from one of the boardwalks. This attraction is across from Bunbury Wildlife Park (not free). There...More
