This is a story about two men and a river. The river is not just a body of water; it is a fragile marine eco-system that connects the Perth hills to Fremantle Harbour and the Indian Ocean. The Swan River and its tributaries are to Perth what the harbour is to Sydney. It is the heart and definitive geographic feature that defines not only the shape of the West Australian capital but also its character.
