Heirisson Island, Perth Reviews

  • One of Perth's best kept secrets. Heirisson Island is a small Island in the Swan River, on the eastern edge of Perth's CBD. Originally a series of small islands the traditional Indigenous landowners called it "Matagarup" or (leg-deep). After years of dredging it's been transformed into a small nature reserve which is now home to Kangaroos. On a recent cycle around the city we stopped at Heirisson Island and captured some amazing photos of the city and kangaroos. The Island is difficult to get to by car, but walking or cycling from either shore is easy. Also consider bringing water if you decide to walk or cycle. We were impressed that there was no rubbish what so ever.

  • Best hidden secret in town . A small peace of paradise for quick gateway. If you are lucky enough you will meet unleash kangaroos. Don't expect to find hérisson 😊.

  • Amazing views but sadly a target for car break ins. Be careful and leave nothing exposed in your car.

  • Nature near the city. There were supposed to be BBQs on the island but doesn't seem that there are. Ended up going over to the parkland at Burs wood.

  • Heirisson Island is the small island connected to the causeway between Perth City and Victoria Park/Burswood area. You can park in Burswood park by the Crown casino to walk to the island. There are two halves, the Southern end is gated and has the free roaming Kangaroos while the Northern end has the car park (only accessible going away from the city) as well as the toilets and an open park for picnics and BBQs. I was quite lucky when I went. There were people who had already spotted the kangaroos relaxing under the trees so it wasn't difficult to find them. After strolling around the southern end, I went through the underpass on the Perth city side to the northern side. As I was walking around the northern end I spotted dolphins swimming in the river. It was quite a nice walk around the island. Other people were on bikes and others were fishing along the edge of the river. Quite a nice place for an afternoon stroll.
