About this place
Downstream from Syd's Rapids, this section of the Swan River has rapids followed by deep pools, such as this one, Boongarup Pool. Pack a picnic and sit near the pool and spot black ducks, grey teal, shelducks, wood ducks and cormorants.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
