East Perth Power Station & Banks Reserve

Banks Reserve sits on the Swan River foreshore in Mount Lawley.  It covers approximately 3.5 hectares and is bounded by Joel Terrace, the Old East Perth Power Station, and the Toni DiScerni wetlands.  Views of the Windan Bridge can be seen from Banks Reserve.

Banks Reserve is noted for its cultural significance as a 'meeting place' and a 'camp'.

It is considered by Noongar people to be of great heritage significance for its spiritual, mythological, and historical connections, due to its proximity to the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River).
