Heathcote Reserve

Overlooking the spectacular Swan River in Applecross, Heathcote is a unique site offering uninterrupted views of the City and is set among beautifully restored heritage buildings and landscaped gardens.

Heathcote Reserve

Heathcote Reserve is the site of Heathcote Cultural Precinct, which hosts a contemporary art gallery, a museum detailing the history of the site, workshop spaces and rooms for hire, artist studios, and the BWG Steakhouse restaurant. The reserve is often busy with family picnics due to the large ship inspired playground.

Park Facilities:

  • Barbeque facilities and public toilets (wheelchair accessible)
  • Footpaths and benches
  • Children's adventure playground

More information about site facilities can be found on the Heathcote Cultural Precinct page.
