Perth's top event venues

We are now inviting proposals for events at two of Perth's top venues located in the heart of the city - Elizabeth Quay and Yagan Square.

We want to partner with innovative event operators, business owners and developers to activate our places and be part of the city's exciting summer season.

We're open to ideas of all sorts, with family-friendly events and initiatives from local businesses strongly encouraged.

Have a look at our Open for Business brochure which outlines what we're looking for this events season and the things to consider for your event proposal.

    Elizabeth Quay offers sweeping views across the Swan River and back to the city skyline, making this destination a unique events and entertainment space. Surrounded by a mixture of food and beverage operators, the quay hosts venues suitable for a range of events and has had a full events calendar and millions of visits since opening in 2016. Its larger vacant lots will be available for events for a limited time.

    Yagan Square

    Located in the heart of the CBD, Yagan Square is one of the city’s most popular community, meeting and celebration places. It offers a range of experiences, from event spaces for relaxation and play, to a market hall, cafés and restaurants, digital media, native gardens and engaging public art.

A range of exciting events

We've been working with event organisers since 2011 to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors into the city to be part of something unique and exciting. 

Each events season has seen something new emerge in Perth - from a beach in the middle of the city, to a container bar and ice skating rink. Perth has dressed in white to dine under the stars by the river, spent Sunday mornings planting at community gardens, flocked to arts and cultural festivals and spent summer nights wandering through outdoor markets.
