A beautiful spot right on the banks of the Swan River in Crawley, follow the path along the river and through some bush for a lovely walk and some fresh air. A beautiful place to stop for a picnic (or bite to eat at the Matilda Bay cafe), with the chance to spot pods of dolphins playing close by in the bay. Situated right by the University of Western Australia, you can also pop across the road to see some peacocks in their grounds and enjoy the beautiful gardens. Alternatively follow the path south towards the Perth Royal yacht club, or north towards the old Swan Brewery, King's Park and Jacob's Ladder; where you can do more exploring and enjoy some native flora and fauna and spectacular views of Perth.
