The Swan River (Upper Reaches) Aquatic Use Review is now complete. We will not be progressing changes to aquatic use in the upper reaches of the Swan River after two proposals failed to attract community support.

Of the more than 2,000 people who responded to the online survey, 75% rejected a proposed two year trial allowing personal water craft (PWC) to navigate upstream of the Windan Bridge, and nearly half did not want changes to the boundary of the Belmont ski area.

Current rules will continue to apply:

  • PWC not permitted upstream of Windan Bridge
  • Belmont water ski boundaries remain unchanged

    Thank you for participating in the Swan River (Upper Reaches) Aquatic Use Review (AUR). 

    The Department of Transport (DoT) is proposing changes to the management of waters within the Swan River upstream of the Windan Bridge and welcomes your feedback.

    Stakeholder consultation has identified proposed changes to enhance the safe, equitable and sustainable use of the waterway.
