Leschenault Inlet is extremely productive with blue manna crabs in the right season, whereas the Collie River is abundant with fish such as silver bream and kingfish. Also flathead, whiting and herring can be caught in the estuary. Several BBQ areas along the Inlet are ideal for picnics.
On the Old Coast Road south of Australind, this is a popular fishing and swimming spot.
Off the Old Coast Road, approximately 2kms north of the shopping centre, the cemetery features pioneer graves surrounded by an abundance of wildflowers in the spring. For further information call in at Henton Cottage.
St Nicholas Church in Paris Road is reputed to be the smallest church in Australia. It is only 3.6m wide and 8.2m long and was originally built as a workman’s cottage. Services are still held in this church which was built in 1848.
Great place for all those nature enthusiasts! Take your binoculars and spot the abundant wildlife. Sixty species of birds have been recorded; lots of kangaroos at dusk and dolphins frequent the shoreline.
Long or short circuit walks can be enjoyed. There is a 4 kilometre estuary walk which will take you about one and half hours, or a short walk which starts at the car park. An information panel tells you which direction to take.
