Swan River

On the city’s doorstep lies this natural beauty – creating a stunning contrast against the skyline of city high rises. Dual-use paths make it possible to walk, ride or skate a circuit around the Swan River. For water sports enthusiasts sailing, windsurfing and canoeing are popular choices, with hire facilities located along the foreshore. The ‘bridges’ walk around the river (crossing at Narrows Bridge and the Causeway) will take you approximately 2.5 hours.
