An island connecting the Causeway to the east and southern suburbs. Has picnic facilities but not all that popular.

“Culturally significant for Aboriginal people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

It may look average for the average white person driving over the bridges above, but this is a spiritual home for local indigenous people.
One of the few places left in an almost natural state as it has been for thousands of years of Aboriginal use.

“Kangaroo Spotting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Get a little chill off and drop by Herisson Island. There is no entrance fee for it, the most amazing thing that can happen to a solo traveller. :P Spot a kangaroo if you are lucky enough. :)

“A cool island to see the kangaroos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The island is nice for a weekend getaway. Visited this place on a Sunday Morning. Saw 5 kangaroos in the island. No fees to enter the island. The parking is free on the weekend too. It's located only 10 minutes from CBD.
