Don't BUZZ that bird

Birds nesting and feeding at Point Walter Spit

Point Walter Spit is one of the Swan Canning Riverpark’s most popular and scenic recreational locations.

The spit is also an important site for waterbirds, especially our beloved swans, using the Swan River. It is a feeding ground, a resting place and during spring and summer it may be a nesting site. 

These birds are easily disturbed and frightened off by people walking, fishing, kitesurfing and paddle boarding on and near the spit.

This brochure, created with Birdlife WA and City of Melville, has some great points on how you can help share the Riverpark with our feathered friends.
