Heritage is about the things from the past which
are valued enough today to save for tomorrow.

Swan River Colony City Walking Trail

Heritage Perth and the State Library of Western Australia have collaborated to produce this downloadable Swan River Colony City Walking Trail.

We hope you enjoy this walk exploring Perth’s colonial heritage. The walk can begin at the Supreme Court Gardens and end at the State Library of Western Australia, or be done in reverse. Allow an hour to complete this walk comfortably.

This trail is an introduction to the history of the area from colonisation in 1829 to the early 20th Century and provides links for further study.

The State Library of Western Australia preserves maps, photographs and documentation recording the history of Western Australia and provides free workshops for school students to develop historical investigation skills. www.slwa.wa.gov.au To book a workshop, speak to an education officer on (08)9427 3202, complete the online form, or email your request to ed@slwa.wa.gov.au

The development of this walking trail is proudly supported by The City of Perth
