The Swan River, or Derbarl Yerrigan Bilya, as it’s known in Nyoongar language, has been the main conduit between the Inland Plains and the Indian Ocean for centuries, and holds a special significance for many cultures.

None more so than the region’s traditional owners, the Whadjuck Nyoongar people, who have occupied this land for over 40,000 years. Join us for a fascinating insight into the lives and legends of Australia’s first inhabitants, and enjoy a truly unforgettable Cruise experience.

Enjoy stories at numerous points of interest and tales of Aboriginal history and culture from traditional owner Kerry-Ann Winmar. Guests will be offered morning tea with delicacies featuring native ingredients from one of Perth’s premier caterers.
