The Kuching Wetlands national park lies 15km to the northwest of Kuching along the coast and was gazetted in 2002. It spans over a coastal area of estuaries and is composed of marine and freshwater ecosystems with mangroves. It is a natural breeding and nursery ground for fish and prawn species and covers an area of 170 kmē. Supposedly the Irrawaddy dolphin can be spotted here, but during our visit we were unable to see any, which did not surprise us because there is a heavy traffic of boats on the waterways of the area. The park is only accessible on a tour, which can be booked in Kuching.
