  • Good spot to walk and relax. Always a number of water birds to be seen. Good cycle track access.
  • Beautiful spot to have a picnic or just a wander. Usually quite busy but never had a problem getting parking. Great area for the kids to have a play and public bathroom is easily accessible.
  • Super great for the whole family. Point Walter provides lots of shade, sun, wildlife and fun for everyone. For people who find nature interesting and enjoyable, this is a great place. The only bad thing I can think of is that the toilets are often very unclean. They are dimly lit, usually messy, and the floor is occasionally wet. But, it is a public place and these things happen in public places. The reserve itself is a great retreat for anyone looking to find some peace and quiet. It's also great for birdwatchers, as there are a lot of different birds in the area. Close to the river, it is also a good place to launch a kayak or paddleboard. Overall, Point Walter Reserve is a wonderful place, and I often find myself lost in its beauty and quiet, away from the city.
  • Stand up paddle board hire at Point Walter is great in the afternoons with the protection from the land mass from the consistent afternoon sea breezes during summer, the mornings are even better as you get the same protection on the western side from the morning easterlies, perfect for a guided river tour with Elemental Stand up Paddle Board hire
  • A lovely spot by the river with safe beaches for young children and places to launch boats It gets very crowded at weekends There are two car parks one the lower car park is at the river level and the other is higher up and winds down to the river. There is a pedestrian only area between the two car parks. I prefer the lower carpark has there is much more room and it is easier to walk along the riverbank than it is up and down the hill.
