Take Me to the River, the Story of Perth’s Foreshore by Julian Bolleter is a fascinating book that provides insights into the changing ideas of what Perth was, what it could have been, and indeed what it can be. A story of Perth’s evolving relationship with its river is told in the many hundreds of ‘lost’ proposals for developing the foreshore that have been drawn up over the past two centuries.

Why not get to know the Swan River for yourself by reading this fascinating book and exploring the foreshore by bike?  For information about Swan River Cycle Trails, visit Destination Perth.
