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 Water Park

Located opposite the Esplanade Train Station, and framed by William Street and Geoffrey Bolton Avenue, BHP 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 BHPis at the heart of the space.

The water feature at Elizabeth Quay’s BHP Water Park uses jets, misting, sound and lighting to create exciting and changeable water choreography.

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.

The Island

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 is now home to Isle of Voyage, as a family-friendly cafe offering relaxed dining and refreshments.

Families dig, splash and play around on the nautical-inspired nature playground on the island, which 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.

The Promenades

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 Landing

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.

The Inlet

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.
