Estuaries of Western Australia facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The estuaries of Western Australia (also known as the Inlets of Western Australia) are located along the coastline of Western Australia.

The coastline can be considered in three main sections: south, west, and Kimberley. Some estuarine features carry through all three regions.

Wetlands and estuaries of the south west region have very similar ecologies and occurrences of biota.

South

The estuary/inlet names do not necessarily relate to the names of the rivers that flow into them.

(This list is along the coast from the east near Esperance to the west near Cape Leeuwin.)
