Canning Bridge Art Trail

As you stroll along the Canning River foreshore you may notice some eye-catching sculptures and art pieces decorating the way.

Did you know there are 17 unique public artworks that stretch the foreshore from Point Heathcote to Mount Henry Bridge?

Download our pocked-sized Canning Bridge Art Trail brochure or pick one up from Heathcote Cultural Precinct and go on your own art treasure hunt. The brochure shows the location of each artwork and gives an overview of the piece and the artist.
