This circuit walk takes you around the Swan River from the car park at the end of Ellam Street, Victoria Park. There are plenty of benches, picnic spots and grassy areas along the way to take a break and enjoy the serenity. Keep a lookout for black swans and the occasional dolphin in the Swan River, and make a stop at Heirisson Island to see Perth's inner-city kangaroo residents. The path is flat and very well maintained the whole way with picnic areas and playgrounds. The paved trail surface is wheelchair and stroller friendly, although wheelchair/mobility equipment and stroller users may need assistance in the moderately steep sections near the bridges. The loop walk can start and end at many different locations due to its proximity to public transport and parking. All that walking will work up an appetite, and there are multiple cafes and restaurants located around the loop, offering incredible views over breakfast, lunch or dinner. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
