At the time of European settlement the area on the northern side of today’s CBD consisted of wetlands stretching some 80 to 95 kilometres northward. During wet winters the numerous lakes flooded, inundating the surrounding land. Many of these lakes were interconnected, draining into the Swan River at East Perth through natural drainage into Claise Brook.
Development north of the town lead to the disappearance of most of this wetland. Our drive and walking tour will explore some of the remnant and restored wetlands close to the city.
