Heirisson Island is an island in the Swan River in Western Australia at the eastern end of Perth Water, between the suburbs of East Perth and Victoria Park. It occupies an area of 285600 m²,  (70 acres) which forms the link between the two bridges of The Causeway, 

Kangaroos are on the Island so use caution for mutual awareness

Interesting history, the island, originally a series of mudflats, is named after a French midshipman named Francois-Antoine Boniface Heirisson who explored the Swan River in a longboat from 17th to 22nd June 1801.

The area around Heirisson Island is traditionally associated with the Beeloo Nyungah people who knew the small islands and mud flats as Matagarup, referring to the river as being "one leg deep". 

The Matagarup mud flats were the first major crossing point upriver from the river's mouth (at Fremantle) and were an important seasonal access way over which the Beeloo Nyungah gave other groups right of passage across the river

The area in which Heirisson Island is currently located is an important area for Noongar people. Once comprising of a small chain of islands and surrounding mud flats, this area is known as Matagarup, which refers to the place where the river is only leg deep. 

Where the island currently stands was a much smaller island known as Kakaroomup. This area was a main crossing point from one side of the river to the other, where Noongars could wade through the water. A statue of Whadjuk Noongar warrior Yagan was erected on the island in 1984 to recognise Yagan’s strong leadership and resistance fighting during the early years of the Swan River Colony.

In 1801, Heirisson Island was named after French midshipman François-Antoine Boniface Heirisson, who was on the French ship Le Naturaliste, which was a scientific expedition led by Nicolas Baudin.

Today the island is still used as the main crossing from one side of the river to the other, using the causeway bridge. The island has a number of facilities, such as seating barbecues, picnic shelters, a children’s playground, a kangaroo sanctuary and toilets. 

Heirisson Island is an island in the Swan River in Western Australia at the eastern end of Perth Water, between the suburbs of East Perth and Victoria Park. It occupies an area of 285600 m2 (3074000 sq ft), and is connected to the two foreshores by The Causeway. The next upstream island is Kuljak Island, then Ron Courtney Island, with no islands in the Swan River downstream between Heirisson Island and the Indian Ocean other than the artificial islet in Elizabeth Quay.

Before development, there were several small islands, surrounded by mudflats.
The Noongar name for the area is Matagarup (meaning "leg deep"), which has been retained for the single island after reclamation.

Over the years, dredging and reclamation has created a single island, which is now a landscaped nature reserve, with a 2 km (1.2 mi) walking path.

In 1998, five female western grey kangaroos were introduced onto the island, followed by a female with a male joey in 2000.
