This stopping point is at the foot of the hill that rises to Kelvin Street and Swan View Terrace in Maylands. Behind the Bullrushes on the landward side is the Secondary Lake, constructed in 2001. From the mid 19th century until well into the 20th century Chinese Market Gardens were located here. Chinese pots and bottles are still sometimes found in Stone Street gardens.
Australian Reed Warblers can often be heard here. Raptors (birds of prey) including Wowoo (Australian Hobby), Yoondoordoo (Eastern Ospreys), and Black-Shouldered Kites are regularly seen flying overhead.
Yawl trees (Swamp Paperbarks) grow on the river side of the path in fresh water that flows under the path to the river. Wadjuk Noongar revered and cared for these trees, valuing their bark for roofing, food wrapping and bedding, etc.
