This walk meanders around the Big Swamp wetlands, a conservation wetland, located one kilometre south of the Bunbury city centre. It is home to over 60 species of birdlife, including the Australasian Grebe, white-faced heron, dusky moorhen and purple swamphen. The wetland is a popular place for bird enthusiasts. The path has a number of lookouts including a wooden boardwalk through paperbarks and a bird hide in the middle of the wetland – which is an excellent place to observe native birds in their natural environment.
