Bernard Park

Parks and Gardens

Located along the banks of the Avon River in Northam, Bernard Park provides a picturesque destination for a relaxing day out. Whatever time of year your visit brings you to Northam; Bernard Park is teeming with wildlife, most notably the plentiful white swans.

Take advantage of the electric barbeques provided or bring a picnic and settle down under the shade of the 100 year old Pine trees. Take a walk down to the banks of the river to see the only natural breeding ground in Australia of the graceful White swans. A White swan enclosure can also be found at the eastern end of the park.

The picturesque location offers a pleasant walk between the bridges on the Avon River where children will be kept entertained by the shaded playground.

If your visit brings you to the area in August, the park is a hive of activity as it is the starting point of the Avon Descent, a 134 kilometre white water race down the Avon River to Perth. The park is also home to various festivals and the Northam markets.

Bernard Park is in the centre of Northam, a one and a half hour drive northeast of Perth.
