PERTH | UNIQUE VENUES
Over the next three years, Perth event
organisers will have the choice of
exciting new venues at some of the
most picturesque spots in Perth. Following in
the wake of the highly successful Perth Cultural
Centre, the Metropolitan Redevelopment
Authority (MRA) will be opening up Elizabeth
Quay (summer of 2015/16) and Yagan Square
(2017). These two new precincts will adopt
the WA State Government’s redevelopment
authority’s ethos of putting people first in its
design, management and eventing decisions.
The MRA currently manages the Perth Cultural
Centre, positioned between Perth’s central city
and vibrant inner-city district. This unique
outdoor venue has many different function
spaces. It’s an attractive destination for a range
of major events throughout the year, including
Fringe World, Awesome Festival, State of the Art,
markets and corporate functions.
In 2016, the MRA will also have a new
and exciting venue to offer to commercial and
community event holders. Elizabeth Quay will
incorporate commercial, residential, retail and
cultural attractions set around a 2.7 hectare inlet,
connected by promenades and boardwalks. The
development links the river to the Perth CBD and
provides a destination that will host a range of
activities and events to attract people of all ages.
Event venues to hire include The Landing
– the primary public event space, Station Park –
including a significant interactive water
feature, the Eastern and Western Promenades,
Barrack Street Jetty, and several of the
surrounding development sites that will be future
commercial buildings but in the shorter term will
be available as ‘clean’ event sites.
In 2017, Yagan Square will be complete, part
of the MRA’s Perth City Link project (linking
Northbridge to the Perth CBD). This space will
provide future event opportunities in the central
