WA Maritime Museum

Changes and the development of the Swan River are traced throughout this gallery, encompassing the natural, social and transformations within the landscape.

Climb aboard the Valdura, an old Swan River ferry, and see Lady Forrest, Fremantle’s first steam pilot boat, both restored to their original condition.
