This is an island nature reserve in the heart of the city. Very little visited. Peaceful with good views.

This must be unique. Have your lunch with the Roo's. They are wild, although completely at ease with humans. You can come in at any time but is a favourite spot for office workers to take their lunch. A quite surreal experience, in the midst of a capital city being gazed at by wild Kangaroos whilst munching a sandwich.

Just go behind the fences and watch out for the Kangaroos. You can go very close and even touch them, even I preferred just to watch and make some photos. Nice place to see the australian wilderness just a few steps away from the City.

Park in a small isolated car park or walk from the city then walk further around the island in the hope of finding a sleeping Kangaroo under a tree while constantly surveying dead grass, sand and swatting away thousands of flies. Then return to the car park and hope your car has its windows intact while others have sought to check for your valuables. Recommend you visit the zoo instead.

My first visit to Island. Have sailed past in private boat many times.
Enjoyed seeing Yagan statue. Only saw one kangaroo, even though signs say there are numerous animals on Island. There were a lot of native birds however
