Elizabeth Quay is the new exciting hub for city of Perth, Western Australia. It’s where people come together with families or friends, and participate in mini golf, have lunch amongst stylish city views, or take in a stroll along the magnificent Swan River.
It is Elizabeth Quay, it is new and it is the social vibe of the city.
Where is it
Elizabeth Quay is in the southern end of Perth CBD and situated along the banks of the Swan River. Parking is insufficient around the Quay but paid parking is available a good kilometre away along Riverside Drive.
If all else fails and you are not in the vicinity of the city, catch a train into the city and get off at Elizabeth Quay train station on the Mandurah and Joondalup lines.
There are a couple of dining options inside The Quay, well outside the city centre that is. You can dine in style at the Isle of Voyage or The Reverley restaurants. Or you can take the laid-back approach and grab a burger and coffee at the V Burger Bar and watch the ferry’s come in.
Cruises and Ferries
Elizabeth Quay is the home of the Transperth Ferry terminal, where you can get aboard the ferry and head to South Perth on the other side of the Swan River and check out the attractions available on the south side, the Perth Zoo is always popular.
The Little Ferry Co. terminal is also situated at The Quay. A boutique ferry shuttle that takes you to stunning river front restaurants at the “On The Point” location and Claisebrook. Once you have done dining out The Little Ferry Co. will be ready to bring you right back again.
The kids aren’t forgotten at The Quay either, with a challenging mini-golf course that will bring kids and parents together or perhaps create a family rivalry. There is also a playground and carousel for the younger ones and if all else fails hire a bike and take a ride along the Swan River.
In summertime the kids can have a real splash at the BHP Biliton Water Park. At various times of the day the fountains spurt out water and the kids or bigger kids get drenched in their everyday clothing. Who doesn’t love running under the sprinklers on a scorching summers day.
Elizabeth Quay is still on the rise
Elizabeth Quay is still on the build with the luxury Carlton- Ritz Hotel and Towers making good process. It is bound to add an even great appeal and to the glamour of The Quay.
Swan River Walk
It is the finest walk in the city, the Swan River on one side and towering buildings on the other side. On a perfect summer’s day, you will nothing more therapeutic than taking a stroll over the unique Elizabeth Quay Bridge, where you can capture the greatest images with your camera and breathe in the fresh air that you normally can’t get at a major city.
