Shelley Foreshore

$45.00$75.00 $27.00 - $45.00

Shelley foreshore is on the banks of the Canning River in western Australia. The Canning river (Djarigarra in Nyungar) is a tributary of the swan river in south western Australia and was named   George Canning in 1827 when Captain James Stirling on HMS Success explored the region in March 1827. There are many birds and dolphins as I have tried to show in the picture but in the river is a lot of old wooden posts sticking up these are old jarrah posts and originally had interwoven between the posts casuarina boughs and logs cut from vegetation along the river bank through poles to create a fence. This fence is an old convict fence built by Henry Passmore in 1866 with 154 convicts who worked waist deep in water with shovels with the whole idea of creating a fence to help with the dredging between Salter Point and Shelley Bridge so that the timber barges could travel down river from Mason Bird comp. The convict era in Western Australia was between 1850 and 1868. The point was created in 1950 and is called mums point as originally when dredging was being dug out the channel went through that area. Remnants of the old wooden poles exist there still and remnants of the convict camp. The fence is described as a prominent and uncommon structure of landscape and of important Heritage value and is registered under the state. So, the area is of historical importance.
