Review of Heirisson Island

Heirisson Island
Ranked #25 of 201 things to do in Perth

Attraction details
Reviewed 15 March 2018

Close to the city & surrounded by the Swan River but apparently because I is an aboriginal site little has been done to enhance this largely engineered (for the causeway) island.
Some fenced in grey kangaroos & nice walk trails

I took my Polish friend to see some kangaroos, but unfortunately they are all gone. So, if you are tracking down roo's try somewhere else

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.
