Swan River, Perth

4.6
Swan River provides an excellent venue for enjoying a sunny day in Perth. Like the locals, you can boat, fish, kayak, and swim in the clean water, or enjoy a picnic and view from the riverbanks. Various companies provide river cruises, introducing you to an ecosystem that includes water plants, fish, crabs, dolphins, osprey, pelicans, and black swans. Head upriver to the Swan Valley to tour a winery or downriver to see historic Fremantle at the river's mouth.
