Bird life and fauna

Bird life 

A dedicated regeneration program, which commenced in 1986, has transformed an unloved refuse area into unique parklands, encouraging the return of bird life including many indigenous bird species.

Today, many varieties of bird life and water fowl call Burswood Park home.

Visitors can enjoy the diversity of local fauna as the seasons change.

Please do not feed the birds. The Town of Victoria Park’s Health Local Law 2003 (clause 78) states that “A person shall not feed a pigeon, dove, seagull, ibis, raven or other wild bird, so as to cause a nuisance or be injurious or dangerous to health.”

It is also an offence under Section 33D of the Dog Act 1976 for a dog to attack or chase a person or other animal whether injury is caused or not. Please ensure your dogs are on a lead at all times and do not approach the wildlife.
