    The picture is at the Willem De Vlamingh statue in Burswood Park. The swan is there because Willem De Vlamingh was the first European in Perth he entered through the Swan River.

    Co-ordinates = 31.9636° S, 115.8915° E

      This is a nice answer! Something to check: was the river called the Swan River before Vlamingh? How can you find out?
