Swan Estuary Marine Park

Swan Estuary Marine Park encompasses three biologically important areas within the Swan River region: 

  • Alfred Cove (200 hectares adjacent to the suburbs of Attadale and Applecross);
  • Pelican Point (a 45 hectare area in Crawley); and
  • Milyu (95 hectares adjacent to the Como foreshore and Kwinana Freeway).

Swan Estuary Marine Park is zoned for general use. Explore the interactive map below to find out what fishing activities are permitted in the different areas of the park.

Remember that Statewide recreational fishing rules (such as species, bag and size limits, seasonal closures, gear restrictions and licence requirements) also apply to fishing in Swan Estuary Marine Park.



The key species likely to be found in the marine park include blue swimmer crabs, school and king prawns, black bream, Australian herring, tailor and flathead.
