Roads and Pathways
Elizabeth Quay’s cobblestone paving is rougher on the internal roads, helping to slow traffic and provide a tactile demarcation for visually impaired visitors between roads and pedestrian pavements.
There's a number of crossing points at the quay where smoother pedestrian grade granite gives a continuous accessible pathway to pedestrians, wheelchair users and people pushing prams.
Ramps are available at various locations providing access between the promenades and tiered decking on the landing.
The bridge is also accessible by wheelchair.
Elizabeth Quay is home to WA's first Changing Places facility. This fully accredited changing facility is for people who can’t use a standard universal accessible toilet and might need assistance or specialist bathroom equipment.
The Changing Places facility is located in the same building as V Burger Bar, right next to BHP Water Park. It has an adult-sized height-adjustable change table, tracking hoist system, extra space for carers or wheelchairs and a centrally placed toilet.
You will need your own MLAK key to access the facility. Keys are available from Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia.
Short term ACROD bays are available on The Esplanade, Riverside Drive and Geoffrey Bolton Avenue.
The location of longer term, off street ACROD bays in the Perth CBD is available on the Department of Transport map. Visit City of Perth Parking or Wilson Parking for address and entry details, rates, opening hours and available bays at these carparks.
Taxis and Drop Off Points
The safest place to pick up and drop off passengers is at Barrack Street Jetty.
Taxi ranks are located at Barrack Street Jetty and Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. There are also ranks on nearby streets (north towards the city) at William Street (near the Hay Street Mall), Wesley Church (Hay Street) and London Court (St George’s Terrace).
Seeing Eye Dogs
Seeing Eye Dogs and other dogs are welcome at the quay.
