Wanjoo! Yagan Square invites Perth to enjoy local fare and culture

  • Yagan Square

Yagan Square opens to the public from 11am today, following a traditional Whadjuk welcome and official ceremony.

The $73.5million precinct boasts a Market Hall of international cuisine and local produce, 45m digital tower and canopy, amphitheatre, children’s playscape and a new inner city mall connecting William Street from the CBD to Northbridge.

The precinct design reflects Aboriginal stories and the unique Western Australian landscape. In collaboration with the Whadjuk Working Party, the project team has created a unique destination that will strengthen the local and international understanding of Aboriginal culture.

The digital tower will be programmed day and night to showcase an extensive library of local, national and international content as well as promoting events and other visitor information.

A community celebration – Bunuru Welcome - named after the Noongar season for February-March will be held from 23-25 March featuring live music and dance performances and giving people an opportunity to come and explore Perth's newest destination.
