About this place
Adenia Park is a popular for people cycling and walking on the southern side of the Canning River. This area is also very significant to the Australian Sikh community.
Adenia Park sits within the Canning River Regional Park and contains some of the best estuarine vegetation in the Swan Canning Riverpark. The park has a wide diversity of habitats including the saltwater estuary and islands, and has over 100 species of birds.
This area is popular for bush walks, dog exercising, cycling, and picnicking. Informal tracks that lead through the swamp to areas alongside the river are well used, particularly for fishing. The Australian Sikh Heritage Trail is an interpretive trail in the park.
Adenia Park is very significant to the Australian Sikh community as this place has long been associated with religious ceremonies. In 1929 it was the location of the first legal cremations in WA after the Sikh community campaigned for cremation to be legalised.
The area is now on the State Heritage List and to reflect on and celebrate this history, the Australian Sikh Heritage Trail provides visitors with a unique opportunity to learn about this important heritage, Whadjuk Noongar people and the natural landscape of the area.
The Australian Sikh Heritage Trail forms part of the River Journeys Project, a Parks and Wildlife Service initiative that communicates and shares both the natural and cultural heritage values of the Swan and Canning rivers, enhancing the recreational visitor experience.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
