Starting from the carpark off Dampier Ave, Erskine, this walk takes you on a circuit within Len Howard Conservation Park via the Erskine Nature Trail. Len Howard Conservation Park is a hidden gem for bird watching in Mandurah. Explore the beautiful Len Howard Conservation Park along the Erskine Trail and discover Mandurah's natural heritage and the region's internationally significant Peel-Yalgorup Wetlands, including the remarkable wildlife that calls them home. Walk through diverse habitats including remnant old growth swamp paperbark and banksia coastal woodland, and travel along boardwalks meandering through a network of samphire saltmarshes. The trail fringes the estuary shoreline, offering plenty of opportunities to spot waterbirds. During certain times of the year, it's also possible to observe breeding ospreys at an artificial nesting platform along the trail. Sit for a while on the seats provided along the trail and spot some of the special migratory waders that visit in the summer months, or enjoy the springtime flowers. Some of the birds you may see include the Chestnut Teal, Banded Stilt, Red-necked Avocet, Whimbrel, Eastern Curlew, Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, and Regent Parrot. This walk is suitable for the whole family. The track has a compacted dirt surface with a gentle, mostly flat gradient, and some slightly overgrown, narrow and sandy sections. The walk can be done as a shorter 1.2km circuit, or extended with a walk to the beautiful Peel Inlet beach near the Mandurah Quay Resort. 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.
