Canning Bridge

Canning Bridge is not a locality in its own right although a number of businesses and even residents describe their location as Canning Bridge. It is a term commonly used. The Canning Bridge spans the mouth of the Canning River where it joins with the Swan River. Canning Bridge carries Canning Highway joining Applecross with Como. It does not span the Swan River. To do that you have to cross the Narrows in South Perth or the Stirling Bridge in Fremantle

Canning Bridge - Under the Bridge

Underneath the Canning Bridge. I never knew this existed. Well, I knew the underneath existed but didn't know you could get down there! Amazing the places you can explore with a four-year-old. Some of the wooden pylons here are etched with XXXIV - 1934. January 2008. Photos Ref: CNBR004
