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.

Head upriver to the Swan Valley to tour a winery or downriver to see historic Fremantle at the river's mouth.
