Mangroves? In Bunbury? Yes, it's true.

The boardwalk is only 100-200 metres but worthwhile to see these southern white mangroves. The boardwalk is part of a much longer - 5km - walk around the waterway. Also worthwhile although the signage is a bit lacking in places.

Short boardwalk
Feb 2020
The boardwalk itself is only short, somewhere around 200 metres, however it can be included as part of the river walk. There is a board with information at the start.

Most southern mangroves in the state
Jan 2020
Leschenault Inlet is home to the most southern mangroves ( white) in the state. The Leschenault Inlet (used to be the Preston River) is a unique waterway & well worth a one to two hour walk around ( via the Mangrove Boardwalk) to take it all in. Tropical mangroves , nearly 1000 kms south of the next mangroves.

A good boardwalk
Feb 2020
Nicely constructed boardwalk, close to the CBD and to Koombana Bay beach, allowing visitors to enjoy the mangroves without disturbing the ecosystem or getting their feet wet. The few signs provided are helpful, but even more would be more helpful.

Not a lot to see on the boardwalk.
Sep 2019
The visitor centre suggested were to park the car, and from here it is a very pleasant walk to the boardwalk, which itself is only 200m. However we spotted the man made towers and on top of one of them was an osprey with one chick. It was surprising how many people didn't even notice the osprey nest. Enjoyable walk.

An up and coming place...

This is looking really good with the new paths, metal spacious lawns on the far side of the dune. There are BBQ there that I didn't know about.

Its a great view across the mangroves towards Bunbury and this will come into it's own tourist attraction once it's finished. It'll be nice once it is all connected with the history of the wrecks, the play areas, etc.

- not sure what's happening around the new lookout, but it was disappointing to take the kids across from the DDC to have a look and realise that the fences are still up. No toilets either.

Only a 200m boardwalk, not the 5km loop walk
Mar 2019 • Family
We visited here today, as part of a larger walk around the inlet. The Boardwalk is only about 200m long. Department of Parks and Wildlife Staff were cleaning up the area when we visited, doing some pruning, so there was lots of leaf litter on the boardwalk itself. Good to see they are maintaining it though. The boardwalk itself looked very run down and the wood is showing real signs of wear. The signage is also quite poor - an information sign at the entrance was so worn by the weather you couldn't even read it. Fortunately the DPaW staff could give us some helpful information about the site. Apparently the site is environmentally significant in that it is the most southern mangrove plantation in the world.

There's not much to see though - it's basically a swamp area with mangroves. We saw some small fish in the water, but it's very murky and brown. For the rest, no real wildlife to be seen.

Note that people seem to confuse the Mangrove Boardwalk with the 5km walk around the inlet. We did this as part of the larger walk (which takes around 60-90 minutes), and that's what I'd recommend. It's hardly worth coming here just to see the mangroves, and there's no easy nearby parking either. But if you are doing the larger loop walk, or in town and want to check it out as part of a larger walk, it is worth having a look. We love nature, but I'm glad we didn't come out of our way to visit here though.

Well maintained boardwalk

The Mangrove boardwalk is an interesting place to visit. You get a beautiful view of the the lavish double storey homes across the water.

Quiet location
Oct 2018 • Friends
Opposite Koombana bay and the Dolphin centre ,this ride is accessable walking or by bike.Its not a long bike ride about ten to fifteen minutes,but there are rest stops along the way where you can relax and have a picnic .At the end of the board walk you can extend your trip west and follow the path which takes you all the way in to town,or cross the road to Koombana bay where there is a cafe for refreshments and food also a safe beach for children or visit the Dolphin centre .
