Burswood canal was one of the earliest public works conducted in the Swan River Colony (now Western Australia) on the Burswood peninsula on the Swan River in the 1830s. It was made to shorten the journey on the Swan River, between Fremantle and Guildford. At that time Guildford was more prominent than Perth.
