Easy track
Starting from the car park at the end of Milne Street, Bayswater, this walk takes you to Baigup Wetland and back. This walk is suitable for families with small children who wants a quick getaway while still offering a unique native flora and hosting several waterbirds. There are areas for picnicking and facilities such as parking, a playground and bathrooms as well. The area is sacred to the Wadjuk Noongar people of Perth, and there are QR codes on the benches along the walk that will give you more insight into the historical background. The sedge plains and amazing paperbark trees are remnants of the original fringing vegetation, and Baigup is considered nationally as a Coastal Saltmarsh Threatened Ecological Community (TEC) because of this. The walk can be completed via cycling as well. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wadjuk Noongar people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
