Where we are

Mardalup Park is a large parkland on the north side of Claisebrook Cove on the East Perth foreshore. Beautifully landscaped, but much quieter then most of the foreshore reserves, this is a popular location for wedding ceremonies in the CBD.

The reserve is located at the eastern end of Brown Street, and can be accessed from the pedestrian bridge via Victoria Gardens. Originally created in 1997 on the site of the former East Perth gasworks, this park contains plenty of artwork constructed from industrial materials.

The park is open, grassy with plenty of walking paths and maturing shade trees. At the sound end of the park, stone steps lead down a tiered grass bank to a wooden boardwalk and paved pathway along the water’s edge. To the north is a more natural foreshore and wooden jetty.

In the past the area was used by many Nyungar families as a camping ground. Mardalup is a Nyungar term meaning ‘place of small marsupial’.
