Elizabeth Quay is the centrepiece of a bold plan by the State Government to revitalise our city and embrace one of Perth's best natural assets - the Swan River.
This project will provide new opportunities for Western Australians to live, work, dine, relax and entertain by the water. Featuring a stunning inlet connected by 1.5km of continuous boardwalks and promenades, the project will deliver great public spaces, new hotel and short stay accommodation and contemporary inner city living opportunities. The pedestrian and cyclist bridge at the entrance to the inlet will lead to an island featuring winding paths, the historic Florence Hummerston Kiosk, children's playground and spectacular views back to the city.
Elizabeth Quay is expected to create more than 4,000 jobs during construction, be a future workplace for more than 10,000 people and attract more than $2billion in private investment. When the public realm is completed in late 2015, Elizabeth Quay will be a place where people gather by the river to work, live and celebrate occasions big and small.
Barrack Street Jetty
A revitalisation of Barrack Square Jetty worth more than $20million is well underway.
Already one of Perth’s top destinations for locals and tourists, the jetty will remain open for business while works are undertaken.
Once works are complete in 2015, the area will be home to an exciting new events space and will be the first precinct of Elizabeth Quay open to the public.
