Pirrita Island Boardwalk

Pirrita Island, Swansea, NSW, 2281

Experience Details

The lakeside boardwalk on Pirrita Island showcases the unique landscape and heritage of Swansea foreshore. The 250-metre boardwalk crosses Pirrita Island's mangroves and looks out over the turquoise waters of Swansea Channel. ‘Pirrita’ is the Awabakal word for oysters from the mangroves, while Miners Point references the coal mining families who lived on the island throughout the 1900s. Interpretive signage has been installed along the boardwalk, showcasing the heritage of the area, as well as the unique flora and fauna that call the island home. As well as this new edition, the existing car park on the western side of Pirrita Island has been upgraded to improve access. A new outdoor fitness trail has also been installed along Channel Street between Swansea Swim Centre and Thomas Humphreys Reserve.
