It's a foreshore running alongside the Swan River and with great views across to Perth's CBD.

Not much more I can say, really.

The Swan River is the heart of South Perth. In the days when the riverbank was still wild, we would race our bicycles along the foreshore, from Mill Point to the Causeway. We called it "the Seven Sisters." These days, it's more civilised, and you can walk from one end of South Perth -- Mill Point -- to the other, the Causeway. The walking is much easier, but less challenging.

Lovely area between the Narrows Bridge and Causeway to enjoy a stroll or more vigorous exercise or just park the car and enjoy the many amenities that are available and so well maintained. We have previously visited on a couple of occasions for family picnics and celebrations. Certainly more enjoyable during the week for us, no crowds, the amenities available, and a real opportunity to see the area. Green lawns, BBQs, picnic tables, ablution blocks, parking facilities, playgrounds, cafes, restaurants, the jetty. Great views across the Swan and to the Perth skyline.

The foreshore is very well maintained with lots of points of interest. Many playgrounds. Nice place to walk.

The South Perth Foreshore runs from the Narrows Bridge to the Causeway. It is an easy track to follow. The grass is green during most of the year. Best way to get there is to take the ferry to Mends St from Elizabeth Quay in the city. There are lots of food and drink outlets in Mends St.

What a view of the city and the river.
Walk or cycle or have a picnic.
There are also cafe and restaurants for you to enjoy. Love it!
Keep the place clean.

This is a lovely open space - just surprising how useless the public toilets are.

My wife needed to use the toilet, but ended up walking to the business district on Mends St to use the facilities in the shopping centre instead.

For a fairly public area, perhaps South Perth should do better.

This will continue to be a pivotal location with the ferry-zoo nexus.

The South Perth Foreshore s easy to access -- take the ferry from Elizabeth Quay to the Mends St Jetty, then walk. The ferry is not expensive. You can walk east towards the Causeway, passing he Coode St Jetty, or west towards he Narrows Bridge, passing the Old Mill and Point Belches. In days gone by, Chinese market gardeners grew their produce by the Swan River. It's said they cursed the ground when they left, so nothing would grow there. For many years, the South Perth Foreshore was a wilderness. Like the clop-clop-clop of Noonan's bakers carts, it's all gone now.

Been a long time since we've been down this way. Very well done with plenty of seating and good walking path. Good grassed areas for kids to play on.Despite cool weather, good to see plenty of people utilising the area.
Love the variety of sculptures, unique and make for great photo ops.

We took the ferry and walked along one afternoon. The views back to Perth are really nice and there seems like a more relaxed feel, as opposed to the cityside. Plenty of people having fun and picnicing and sailing.
