Munglinup River view

Munglinup River joins the Oldfield River eight kilometres from the coast. It flows from the sandplain north of the Highway, and passes through the town of Munglinup.

The river lies generally within a vegetative corridor. The water flows for only short periods each winter, or only negligibly in dry winters, and is naturally brackish to saline.
