  • I loved the place, I went to the end of the afternoon and it was the first time I saw Kangaroos. You need to pass the gate to enter and keep it closed. In addition to Kangaroos you can also see some birds and ducks. It has a good view of the river, a place tastes to rest and walk at the end of the day or in the morning when it is fresher.

  • From the car park, walk towards the bridge, there’s a path under the bridge that leads to the Kangaroo enclosed area. You will find 5 kangaroos wandering around the lake. Recommended time spend 1 hour.
  • Heirisson Island is one of my favourite places in Perth. There are not many people there. It's perfect for a walk or run and you can find some rest. In the middle of the island is a car park. In the southern park you can find human friendly kangaroos for a selfie. At night you can make awesome pictures of the Perth skyline.
  • Visited on a rainy day between 12.00 to 3.00 pm. Couldn't see the Kangaroos. However, the pelicans and other birds were seen. Nice to walk along the island.
  • Heirisson Island located in the Swan River Perth accessed via the Causeway. Easy walking mostly open grassed areas with tree fringe. An enclosed area with a few tame Kangaroos.
  • Very beautiful island with a fantastical spots for breakfast but I think the kangaroo that is alone here should be nice to the place where his buddies are. Kangaroo at the island was really sad and tired :(
