  • There is a sandbar that you can walk out on and you feel like your in the middle of the river. Great grassed areas. There are Swans on the river and a café nearby. 
  • after a short drive through the trees and by the large grassed areas you come the park by the river and the cafe. you can walk on the sandbar out into the river. 
  • Went down with my husband, nephew and dog. Had a lovely picnic bbq using the facilities. Took wander down foreshore to cafe for icecream. Such a lovely few hours. One of my favourite spots. 
  • Point Walter is so beautiful, there's a charming hiking trail that's short enough to finish it in just a few hours (much less if you're fit), there are multiple playgrounds, the grass is soft, you can go fishing on the jetty (though I never caught anything but blowies) and you can expect to see dolphins in the warmer weather too. Once when I was a child, it was a busy day and everyone was in the water until we saw fins in the water. Someone screamed 'shark!' and everyone ran out of the water but I was still in the water, and of course they weren't sharks, they were dolphins! I was able to touch one, it was so close. Point Walter is one of the most beautiful places in WA if you ask me.
  • The cafe is over priced. Nice relaxed atmosphere of the area.
  • Beautiful scenery with multiple areas for kids to play, barbeque areas, public toilets, showers a kiosk and a restaurant. Absolutely magnificent to watch the sunset from the statue of the Chasers up on the hill.
  • Beautiful spot south of the city. Walking trails, river banks, playground and café make the reserve a great place for a lunch or sunset outing.
  • Good facilities, suitable for picnics, has a diversity of sights: sandbar walk, bushes, grass play fields, and the high rocks and stone caves along the river. available parks and playground. However, there is no close bus route; you have to go by your car or to walk for a long distance to the next bus stop.
