winds and severe chop within the
sheltered bays close to shore. As
the sea breezes pick up in spring,
advanced windsurfing enthusiasts
have a selection of offshore sites on
Safety Bay that make for fast and
furious slalom and wavesurfing.
The area is home to more than 100
species of water and bush birds,
including rare osprey, cormorants,
Australian wood ducks, nankeen
kestrel, terns, ibis and heron.
Seabirds are best sighted on the
islands of the Shoalwater Marine
Park, where protected nesting
zones and feeding grounds are
highlights for birdwatchers.
Lake and bush birds gather
on Lake Richmond and Lake
Cooloongup, and within bushland
at Baldivis. Rockingham Regional
Environment Centre conducts
winter walks and lectures around
Lake Richmond, home to WA’s
most important colony of native
frogs, with winter and spring
hibernation time for snakes.
Recent bushfires through Baldivis
have kick-started a regrowth
of native flora, including native
wisteria and buttercups, banksia,
melaleuca and grevillea. Giant
tuart trees can be viewed from a
tree top walk in the Baldivis forest.

BALDIVIS CHILDREN’S FOREST
This one-of-a -kind, award-
winning bush retreat and animal
refuge owes its existence to the
teachers and children at Baldivis
Primary School, who campaigned
the state government to set aside
20ha for the planting of native trees
and protection of local animals.
The children have planted more
than 20,000 seedlings since 2000,
with species of native fauna,
including birds, possums, frogs
and bats rescued, nurtured and
re-introduced to the environment.
The BCF philosophy is to ‘inspire
visitors and participants towards
a lifelong commitment to
conservation through education’.
Located at 1399 Mandurah Road,
Baldivis. Highly recommended
as a family day-trip destination.
