Upper Swan is an area of great historical significance. Archaeological excavations in 1979 revealed Aboriginal occupation dating back 40,000 years. In tribute to the famous Aboriginal warrior, Yagan, the Upper Swan Bridge was renamed the Yagan Bridge in 2010. Upper Swan also contains the Ellen Brook Nature Reserve, which is listed on the Register of the National Estate.

Join local author Linda Bettenay as she chats about her latest novel Wishes for Starlight.
How does a deaf, orphaned, Noongar boy survive during the implementation of the draconian 1905 Aborigines Act? By having powerful and caring friends.
Starlight is born in the 1890s in Canning Mills, Western Australia, a thriving timber town. He is found and nurtured by some remarkable people. None of their lives are straightforward.
Set largely in WA, Wishes For Starlight is a novel where friendship and loyalty are pitted against public norms played out in an era of prejudice and disadvantage. It is a story about relationships, resilience and what true equality and freedom mean.
This is a free event and bookings are essential.
