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.

Tours operate in partnership with Nyungar Tours and Crystal Swan Cruises on the last Saturday of the month from 10am until noon
