The 370 metre long Matagarup Bridge opened in July 2018 and has been a vital link connecting the Burswood Peninsula to East Perth and the CBD ever since. The bridge design symbolises a ‘coming together of diverse cultures’. The flowing arches can represent a pair of black and white swans or the Wagyl, a water-serpent of great importance to local Noongar culture.
More than just a pedestrian bridge, Matagarup Bridge is a tourist attraction in its own right. In January 2021, the bridge climb experience opened to the public, with the zip line attraction launching soon. There is also feature lighting on the arches illuminating the bridge throughout the year.
