  • Well, three kangaroos who run after and who allow themselves to caress, it's funny. But I liked the setting, very nature with lots of greenery and especially a very nice view on the city of Perth.

  • to be honest it killed an hour with a decent walk but it was not the best day. Easy access and decent walkways with decent views up and down the river. best to go on a sunny day I think. 
  • Heirisson Island is a stone's throw from Perth on the Swan River. It's an easy walk but also with some public transportation (we took the Red CAT to stop 29 then we continued on foot, while the return we've traced all walking). The Park is magnificent, it appears to be light years away from the city. We were lucky enough to meet a ranger who explained that the 5 kangaroos the reserve are all females as male kangaroos are higher and could frighten children. We managed to photograph them all and 5, they are completely habituated to human presence and quietly stroking and photograph. A truly magnificent experience!
