The Mangrove Walk and Boardwalk takes you on a unique walk through the remnants of mangroves that used to grow some 20,000 years ago. Located on Leschenault Estuary, the boardwalk allows a close up view of the unusual vegetation that now grows within the mangroves. Bring along your binoculars to spot over 60 species of water birds that inhabit the area.
Whilst the boardwalk is only 200 metres long the walk is 5.3 kilometres. Make sure you allow plenty of time to enjoy the serenity of the surroundings. Stop at the wooden carved observation huts, which are a photo opportunity in themselves, before completing the remainder of the walk.
The Mangrove Boardwalk is a five minute drive from the centre of Bunbury and 2 hours south of Perth. It is located opposite the Dolphin Discovery Centre which is a popular tourist destination offering a unique opportunity to interact with the Bottlenose dolphins that live in the bay.
