Wadjup-Gabbilju Foreshore Walk

Come for an interpretive stroll with Susan Harris, creator of the newly installed signage along City of Canning’s foreshore walk and learn about the estuarine basins Wadjup & Gabbilju.

Learn about the estuary’s natural and cultural history including Yagan’s presence in the area, convict history, 1960s reclamation and today’s shoreline rehabilitation.

This 2km guided walk travels along a flat bitumen path from the Bull Creek Inlet to opposite Salter Point (corner Fifth Avenue & Riverton Drive). Return via that same path or catch bus 170 at 12.20pm from Stop 20084, arriving at Stop 20058, back near the lookout.

Feeling energetic? Explore an extended self-guided option along the remaining 5km. Simply continue along the rest of the walk examining the mid-river Convict Fence and its signage. You will need to have organised beforehand to have transport back from LoQuay. Take lunch with you or buy it at LoQuay River Cafe. It will take you the rest of afternoon if you want to read the signs.
