Bushy Park Wetlands is bounded at the north by a remnant orchard accessed from the eastern end of Highbury Road. The southern boundary, near the pony club at Drummies Bridge Reserve, is accessed from High Street Road.
The park's eastern boundary is Dandenong Creek and its western boundary is formed by residential properties in King Arthur Drive and Knights Drive.
A section of the Dandenong Creek Trail provides vantage points overlooking the scenic wetlands.
