Carol, there are no high mountains round Perth, so you have nothing to
worry about in that regard.

The WA Group of the old RAOU put out a book titled "Birdwatching Perth
and Environs" in 1995 - could have been a second edition since then.  I
bought it from the WA Museum years ago.  Herdsman Lk and Bibra Lk are
the places to go for waterfowl, while Alfred Cove and Woodman Point are
good for waders and shorebirds.  Penguin Island and Rottnest Island,
Bold Park and Kings Park are also worth a visit.
