Bicton Baths to Point Walter
Starting from the car park off Braunton Street, Bicton, this walk takes you along the Swan River past Bicton Baths and the Point Walter Sandbar. Bicton Baths is biologically quite diverse, and there are many marine animals and plants that reside here. The water here is crystal clear, so it's a beautiful spot for a swim and a picnic, and a great alternative to a day at the beach. Facilities at the adjacent park include barbecues, public toilets and a playground. You can walk along the river for most of the way, and after passing by Blackwall Reach, the foreshore is all yours. Don't forget to check out the top of Blackwall Reach though, as this is a favourite spot for adventurous people to jump off into the river. Once you reach Point Walter, you can walk out on the sandbar if the tide is low. The sandbar extends about 1 kilometre into the river and is a popular fishing spot. Be aware that parts of the sandbar are often submerged, and the drop into the water where boats cross and the bank ends can be quite deep. There's a café located on the Point Walter foreshore where you can enjoy a meal or beverage overlooking the river, before heading back the same way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
