Elizabeth Quay, Perth


Elizabeth Quay opened January 29, 2016. Located on the north shore of Perth Water and centred on the landmark Swan Bells, it is named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. All visitors to Perth should check Elizabeth Quay out while they are here.

The project includes construction of an artificial inlet on what was previously the Esplanade Reserve. It's something that most West Australians are proud of.

There are restaurants in the area as well as a water park for kids and families, plus of course you can walk across the bridge. This is an image of the rooftop bar at Revelry.

The Esplanade Kiosk, built in 1927 in the Federation Arts and Crafts style, was dismantled and rebuilt, brick by brick, as a kiosk on the island feature in the new inlet which you can see in the image below (red tile roof building on far right).

When completed facilities are projected to include 1,700 residential apartments, 150,000 square metres of office space and 39,000 square metres of retail space. Here's a view of what the Ritz Carlton building will look like.

Of course while you're in Western Australia, you should also visit the Margaret River area which is full of vineyards and wineries complete with tasting cellars and many gorgeous boutique places to stay, like Basildene Manor and Empire Retreat.

Plus we have flights up north to Broome where you will experience WA's 90 Mile Beach, some of the best ocean and beaches you will ever see. Cable Beach Club is set right on the beach in Broome and well worth a visit.
