About this place
The Mangrove Cove accessible playground features mangrove root inspired climbing frames, ladders, slides, rope nets and rope bridges. Its design is influenced by the unique mangrove system found in the Leschenault Inlet.
The ground level facilities of the inclusive play area include a wheelchair accessible sand pit and tunnels, water play area, basket swing, drums, chimes and cubbies. There are also picnic, barbeque and toilet facilities. A walkway winds through the play area, accompanied with a lookout deck providing sweeping views of the Leschenault Inlet.
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!

Our land, together. Kalgulup Regional Park protects our culture, plants and animals across Bibbulman lands from the coast to the rivers, hills and lands beyond for present and future generations to learn about, respect, care for and enjoy. These lands and waters, we now entrust to you, to pass on to those who follow.
Kalgulup is a Noongar word meaning ‘place of fire’ or ‘place of burning camp’. It is a place surrounding Quobba Keip Boya (‘a place of pretty rocks and water’), which sits within the lands of the Pinjarup, Wadandi, Kaneang and Wiilmen people. The significance of the name Kalgulup derives from fire and its elements (smoke, coals, ash) being at the koort (heart) of Noongar culture. The name Kalgulup is pronounced ‘Kaal-gool-up'.
