  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lovely family picnic spot.. great place to canoe, take a stroll on the sandbar, kids love jumping off the jetty! Just be careful of jelly fish!
  • A great place to have a picnic. Nice grass. Shady trees. One of the best river spots in Perth. Excellent walking on the sand bar too.
  • Point Walter Reserve is a beautiful spot next to the Swan River. It's a great place for a picnic and a swim. However, there was only one working barbecue. So there was a long wait for food and the barbeque was crowded.
