Nairns Bird Hide

The City of Mandurah in partnership with the Peel Harvey Catchment Council, the Australian Government and Alcoa Australia have constructed a Bird Hide on the Nairns foreshore, Coodanup.

The Bird Hide is at the end of John Street in Nairns, overlooking the Serpentine River tidal mudflat on the estuary. This mudflat provides a rich feeding ground for the tiny shorebirds that travel from China to get here. These shorebirds are the reason the Peel Harvey Estuary is listed as an internationally important wetland under the Ramsar Convention.

This Bird Hide is provided to the public and bird watching enthusiasts so they can observe our amazing migratory and resident shore birds without disturbing them.  A small administration fee will be charged when booking and key pick up can be arranged through the City of Mandurah Recreation Services team as this facility is locked.

To make a booking, please contact the Recreation Assistant – Bookings on 9550 3601 or email
