Claisebrook Cove

Australian Aborigines have inhabited the Swan River region for thousands of years. In 1697 the Dutch navigator, Willem de Vlamingh, named the Swan River after the unique black swans he saw on its banks. Enjoy a stroll along the banks of the beautiful Swan River at Claisebrook Cove where Aboriginal Sacred Sites and modern apartments co-exist on what was once the industrial site of the former East Perth Gasworks.
