About

Point Belches - South Perth Jet Ski Area

Narrows Personal Watercraft Area

Point Belches is a small point on the south side of Swan RiverWestern Australia, about 250 metres east of The Narrows within the area known as Perth Water. The land is part of the South Perth Esplanade, and the water off the point is used as a commercial water skiing area.

Point Belches was discovered by Captain (later Admiral Sir) James Stirling during the Swan River expedition of 1827. He named it in honour of Peter Belches, a member of the exploring party who was Third Lieutenant on Stirling's ship, HMS Success. Stirling almost certainly intended the name to refer to the entire peninsula, but it now refers to a smaller feature on the eastern side of the peninsula. The peninsula itself is now commonly referred to as Mill Point, although strictly speaking this name also refers to a smaller feature, on the western side.

Point Belches is a small point on the south side of Swan River, Western Australia, about 250 metres east of The Narrows within the area known as Perth Water. The land is part of the South Perth Esplanade, and the water off the point is used as a commercial water skiing area.

Point Belches was discovered by Captain (later Admiral Sir) James Stirling during the Swan River expedition of 1827. He named it in honour of Peter Belches, a member of the exploring party who was Third Lieutenant on Stirling's ship, HMS Success.[1] Stirling almost certainly intended the name to refer to the entire peninsula, but it now refers to a smaller feature on the eastern side of the peninsula. The peninsula itself is now commonly referred to as Mill Point, although strictly speaking this name also refers to a smaller feature, on the western side.

Black Swans
in 2015 they have returned in good stocks, whilst some can been seen along the South Perth foreshore the majority seek refuge along the Como Beach side adjacent to "Point Belches". Check the photo album by map location to see the location points.

In 1834 a ferry service was established across the narrow neck from Point Belches to the foot of Mt Eliza. The route for land travel at that time was via Guildford, a considerable greater distance of 29 Kilometres.  In 1849 an article in ‘The Inquirer’, a Perth Newspaper, commentated on the desirability of constructing a bridge at the Narrows and similar sentiments are recorded up to the turn of the century. The Narrows crossing would provide a line of communication between Perth and Fremantle in lieu of the protracted route via the causeway bridge, the first of which had been built in 1843.
