Elizabeth Quay is the place to be, see and do in Perth.
This landmark waterfront entertainment and leisure precinct offers something for everyone.
From a walk over the striking bridge to the Island’s marine-inspired playground; a selfie in front of the landmark Spanda artwork; or a quick bite or drink after work, Elizabeth Quay has it covered.
A calendar of regular, exciting events and activities means it’s easy to find something to do and something to see at the quay.
BHP Billiton Water Park
Located opposite the Esplanade Train Station, and framed by William Street and Geoffrey Bolton Avenue, BHP Billiton Water Park is the primary entry point to Elizabeth Quay.
Visitors can relax on the amphitheatre style decking or enjoy a causal bite to eat at the family-friendly V Burger Bar.
A 470sqm interactive water feature, made possible by a generous $10million contribution from BHP Billiton, is at the heart of the space, which is currently closed until further notice.
Barrack Street Jetty
Barrack Street Jetty has been a major public place and feature of Perth's landscape since 1905. Today, it is a popular spot for locals and visitors to explore the iconic Bell Tower, go on a river cruise, or enjoy restaurants, cafes and family attractions.
The revamped Barrack Street Jetty was the first completed precinct of Elizabeth Quay, with a new event space in front of the Bell Tower and an arbor similar to Brisbane’s famous Southbank precinct.
Perth’s Bell Tower is the world's largest instrument.
Barrack Street Jetty is already popular with tourists.
Enjoy alfresco or fine dining with riverside views.
Ride around the Swan River.
Barrack Street Jetty is a key part of Elizabeth Quay.
New arbor for events and relaxation.
Linked to the Quay by a 20-metre high suspension bridge one side and Barack Street Jetty on the other, the island offers spectacular views of the river and Perth’s city skyline.
Perth’s historic Florence Hummerston Kiosk has been painstakingly relocated and rebuilt on The Island and will soon reopen as a family-friendly cafe offering relaxed dining and refreshments.
Families can already dig, splash and play around on the nautical-inspired nature playground and will have an opportunity to explore the Duyfken later in 2016 as it moors seasonally at a jetty on the eastern side of the island. This island is also home to the bronze statue of Bessie Rischbieth and the swan ramp, where visitors can see the quay’s feathered friends basking in the sun.
Anchored by the quay’s landmark Spanda artwork, visitors can take in views of the inlet and bridge from The Landing.
The Landing is the premier public space for Elizabeth Quay, hosting a range of lunchtime sporting events, concerts and pop up vendors.
Visitors to the The Landing can step down the tiered wooden decking and touch the water at the river’s edge, or just relax and take in a lunch break on one of the grassed areas.
Visitors can stroll around the continuous one-kilometre walkable circuit around the inlet and island, with a ribbon of tree providing shaded places to relax and enjoy the area and outlooks.
At the western riverside of the promenades is the First Contact artwork – a stunning five metre tall, cast aluminium artwork by renowned indigenous artist, Laurel Nannup, which work depicts the arrival of European settlers to Perth.
The eastern promenade offers short stay public moorings for those visiting the quay by boat and easy access through to Barrack Street Jetty.
The Inlet reconnects the city with the river and is the focal point of Elizabeth Quay.
Boats and other watercraft can visit Elizabeth Quay and use one of the short-stay moorings at the public jetties on both sides of the inlet, allowing recreational boaters to stop for a meal or supplies on their way up or down river.
Transperth ferries also berth on the western promenade, connecting commuters and tourists with the South Perth’s attractions.

visitors enjoy spectacular view across the Swan River to South Perth and from The Inlet back to the city.
