A new Perth precinct
This landmark waterfront development reconnects Perth city with the Swan River to create a dynamic new entertainment and leisure precinct, set around a stunning 2.7ha inlet.
Watch this 2-minute animated video and see what Elizabeth Quay's new public spaces have to offer and how the precinct will look when the multi-storey hotels, apartments and office spaces are complete.
Reconnecting with the river
Perth’s riverfront was once a place for picnics and paddling, with public baths along the water’s edge. As the city grew, new development cut off the connection between
the river and the city, culminating in 1940 when Riverside Drive was built. Elizabeth Quay brings the river and the city together again, creating new recreational opportunities for Perth locals and visitors.
A new future for the CBD
The development of the Perth CBD has historically been built on an east-west alignment. Elizabeth Quay returns the city’s focus to the river and - together with Perth City Link, Yagan Square, the Perth Cultural Centre and a range of other public and private developments – extend the CBD north- south. These landmark projects are expanding our city’s grid and adding density to our CBD to create a more connected, vibrant Perth.
