With great access to a wide variety of water activities, Eaton is the waterside gateway to the Ferguson Valley. There is a well-used walk trail along the foreshore, which is perfect for a leisurely stroll and taking in the scenic surroundings. For those who would like to go for a trip on the river, a boat ramp is available. There are lots of opportunities to explore the river or catch some fresh fish for dinner. Crabbing is another popular activity.
The Collie River Estuary is the favoured location for fishing and crabbing. The foreshore along the Collie River is an ideal picnic spot, with playground equipment for the children and lots of shady lawn areas. This is a popular picnic spot for families. There is a caravan park on the banks of the Collie River near the estuary which has self or semi-contained cabins, caravans and tent sites for lease.
