Picnics on the River Foreshore

  • When:on sunny afternoons.
  • Where:Matilda Bay, South Perth or wherever the view lures you in.
  • Good for:spreading out your favourite picnic rug and enjoying some tasty treats with family and friends.

We love picnicking. Preparing the snacks, packing it all up and unwrapping a generous spread across the picnic blanket. Don’t you find you always over cater for these little rendezvous? But that’s all the better, because if you find the right spot you can spend all day lolling about in the grass.

We have so many great stretches along the river that we are spoilt for choice! The foreshore in Nedlands is one of our favourite spots to stop off, just near UWA there. Another stunning setting is South Perth – with a huge stretch of grass making plenty of room for everyone. It’s also home to one of the best views of the city!

Everyone has their favourite spot. Find yours and make the most of the beautiful Swan River. Don’t forget the totem tennis! Claire
