Point Walter, Bicton

My family and I used to spend many afternoons and evenings enjoying the spoils of Point Walter in Bicton – having a picnic on a warm spring afternoon, watching the sunset by the river or sunbaking with a book.

Since becoming a mother, I can no longer spend such lazy days there, but we still make regular trips to Point Walter for two main reasons – playgrounds and coffee.

I say ‘playgrounds’ because Point Walter has two of them. One at the bottom of the reserve, near the water and Walter’s River Café, and a second one, which is a bit further up the hill. The lower playground is more suited to children aged five and over, whereas the top playground has some play equipment suited to younger kids.

The bottom playground is ideal for parents looking to have a meal or a takeaway snack. Walter’s has a dine-in restaurant that is open for breakfast and lunch and a takeaway kiosk. The kiosk has a large selection of drinks, snacks and ice creams for a hot day. Outside the kiosk there are shaded picnic tables and chairs, and one very bold crow that was getting a bit too close to my coffee and muffin.

You can view Walter's River Cafe menu here. It is open every day from 8am to 4pm.

Next to the picnic area, you’ll also find toilets, baby change facilities and showers for when you need to rinse off the kids after those hot summer days spent getting covered in sand.

The upper playground is larger in size compared to the bottom one, and it has it’s own parking area because it is a bit of a hike up a steep hill from the bottom. The playground structure has bridges, various platforms and a slide. There is a swing set and a little rocking horse see-saw, plus a small climbing frame to the side. Some of the area is shaded. There are also BBQ facilities in this area of the park (likewise for the bottom), in case the kiosk is too far to walk.

The view’s not too bad either.

Point Walter is one of Perth’s truly lovely spots for a play-date and coffee and a wonderful space for the kids to run around and have some fun while you enjoy your caffeine fix.
