About The Bigger Picture

Progress has always been defined by transformation and change. And never more so than here in Western Australia. You can see it on our roads, in our schools, hospitals, sporting clubs and our regional communities. 

Big changes are underway, powered by a vision to secure the future of Western Australia through transformative projects and new initiatives. 

Bigger Picture WA is about broadening our thinking, enhancing our capacities and investing in the things that matter most to us. It's a far-reaching initiative that addresses and enhances the key areas of our lives and ensures that they're tied together with the unified vision of strengthening the future of WA.

These changes are powered by a vision to secure the future of Western Australia through transformative projects and new initiatives. 

With major projects taking shape and more to come, Perth is opening up into something special. Upbeat, social and connected. A great place to be for everyone. 

The Plan is coming together.

We’re now beginning to reap the benefits of Bigger Picture WA.

Several milestones in the $1 billion Gateway WA project have now been completed, significantly improving access to and from the Perth Airport precinct, , the public realm of Elizabeth Quay opens in January 2016 and the new $1.2 billion Perth Children’s Hospital is nearing completion. 

New apartments, hotels, retail and commercial facilities are now open and transforming Perth’s eastern gateway into a vibrant inner-city residential and retail hub as the 40-hectare Riverside project takes shape.

The Perth CBD is becoming more vibrant as barriers that have long separated our city centre from its river and its cultural and entertainment heart of Northbridge are being removed. 

Several stages of the Perth City Link project have been completed including the opening of Perth Arena and the sinking of the railway line, and the first four buildings in Kings Square are nearing completion and will soon accommodate more than 4,000 workers. 

Work on Elizabeth Quay, the centerpiece of a bold plan to revitalise our city, is well underway. The inlet is now filled with water, bringing the city and river together again, the pedestrian and cycle bridge linking the island is almost complete, and with more than 1600 people currently working on the project the first stage is about to open. 

As more projects reach completion over the coming months and years, Perth will continue its transformation into a more vibrant and connected city. Beautiful, bright and brilliant, Perth is growing up into a city that all Western Australians can be proud to call home.
