The transformation of Perth began in the waterfront precinct called Elizabeth Quay which officially opened in 2016. Elizabeth Quay is continually evolving with the inclusion of top-notch eateries and activity areas opening up for the public to enjoy.

  • Elizabeth Quay is the perfect start point to view the city by jumping on a ferry up and down the river or getting on a float plane.
  • Take the “Go Cultural” Tour, an indigenous tour showcasing over 50,000 years of aboriginal history on the Swan River.
  • “Two feet and a heartbeat” walking tour, which walks you through Perth’s ongoing renaissance. After 100 years of separation, Northbridge and Perth are connected again with King’s Square. The precinct is filled with bars, restaurants and new developments.
  • Petition is a corner bar which benefited from recent restoration. Over $100 million dollars was spent on the upkeep of the building. The restaurants and hotels within the complex recently won some high profile accolades. Wildflower was voted one of the top three restaurants in Australia. The Como Hotel recieved number 2 hotel in the world by Condé Nast Traveler.
