About Success Hill
Success Hill is a very important site to Whadjuk Noongars. Noongars believe the Waugal is present at the section where Bennett Brook enters the Swan River below Success Hill. It is also believed that Success Hill was an important meeting place for Noongars, serving as a great vantage point looking up and down the river. The area is also known for camping, fishing and hunting. Success Hill is a closed registered Aboriginal site listed as ceremonial and mythological.
In 1831, Guilford residents began to use the fresh water supply and later, in 1960, Success Hill became a sand pit for construction work.
Today Success Hill Reserve offers both open grasses areas and urban bushland areas. The location is also a popular fishing spot. Facilities at the reserve include, toilets, a children’s playground, barbecues and picnic facilities.
This site is managed by the City of Bassendean where you can find more information.
