I came to the Crommelin Native Arboretum with my family. The walk was calm but the paths were a bit confusing. Overall it was a good walk and a look at local flora and fauna.

Such a peaceful place to walk. You can see different birds depending on what time you are there and in the late afternoon if you are quiet you may be lucky enough to see a wallaby. A good place to take children for a walk.

A lovely walk through some beautiful nature. Lots of huge old trees and lots of other interesting plants. Some beautiful photos can be taken and it is only a 20 minute stroll.

We live nearby and visit the arboretum several times a year. Beautiful spot with dedicated volunteers. Worth a visit any time of year. Good for all ages groups. Pearl Beach has everything.

Beautiful spot to wander and take photos, or just sit and relax. Beautiful flora and great boardwalk through the endangered wetland. Close to the beach too.

This is more than just a nature fix. You are almost instantly transported into a heavy oxygen tree library. It is a path less travelled by less everyday. If every city on earth had an arboretum near a school, utopia would be a highway and...More

We happened upon this place while just driving around checking out the houses. It was a short walk but a beautiful one and we talked to a few of the volunteers.
