This is a very professionally run operation, the food is always good, the service is noteworthy but bring your wallet. This is not a particularly economic event. You pay for the stunning views across the Swan River out to the City and of course, for the consistently excellent food. The wine list is ample but again, expensive. Enjoy, if the... More

Excellent parkland on the river with extensive views to Perth City and kings Park. Lots of walking tracts and excellent access to the university campus.

What a beautiful place. So peaceful and very clean. Had lunch at the Maltida Bay cafe right on the edge of the bay and the view across the lake to Perth City and he quaint Boathouse were amazing. If you like photography, water sports etc this is amazing

This is a fantastic place to have a wedding but you must book the ground with the local council. There are many weddings here

Matilda Bay is a great little walk. Always peaceful, apart from Australia Day of course, there is room for picnics, small kids on the beach, dog on leash walking, and a (at times too busy) cafe in the middle of it all. Take a picnic, some drinks and a good book on a sunny day. And take a camera. The... More

This bay on the river Swan seems to catch the sea breeze earlier than other places. Many locals flock here on those hot summer day and have family pick-nicks. This can be a truly multi cultural experience. The water here is shallow and the young kids just love to cool down in the water while Mum, Dad and the rest... More

Lovely long stretch of parkland, with restaurants/cafe, often relatively underpopulated. Adjoins beautiful gardens and architecture of UWA. Often see wedding parties come here for their photos. Limited parking at times (especially when adjacent UWA in semester), bus from city worth considering instead.
