The Swan River is a distinctive element of Perth city. It winds through many suburbs of Perth and along downtown on its way out to the Indian Ocean, but many feel that Perth is not really a waterfront city. They are disappointed by the lack of usage of the Perth waterfront, and therefore the Department of Planning have drawn up several different plans to create a more integrated space between the Swan River and downtown. These plans hope to transform Perth from a largely functional city into a city that seamlessly integrates history, culture, business and leisure.
