Elizabeth Quay is a mixed-use development project in the Perth central business district. Located on the north shore of Perth Water and centred on the landmark Swan Bells, it is named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. The project includes construction of an artificial inlet on what was previously the Esplanade Reserve, and modifications to the surrounding environs including Barrack Square. The project plan shows nine building sites. 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. Planning Minister John Day and Premier Colin Barnett turned the first sod at the Esplanade Reserve on 26 April 2012, and Barnett announced the name "Elizabeth Quay" on 28 May 2012. Construction of the inlet and associated infrastructure were completed in January 2016, ahead of the Perth International Arts Festival and Fringe World. The quay was officially opened on 29 January 2016. Construction of the associated buildings has been estimated to be completed by 2018, with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority's marketing and sales being undertaken between 2014 and 2022.Wikipedia

Elizabeth Quay, Perth Reviews - Write a Review
Really nice part of the city to visit. This new development on the waterfront is enjoyable to visit in the day and at night. The different changing colours on the bridge and along the waters edge give this place an attractive appearance that you can observe as you take in the surroundings. Turn to face the city and you get a view of the high rise buildings which is a big contrast along side the calm waters. We were there on a Friday and took advantage of the free mini cruise with half priced drinks too. Its a cool place to walk around with bars and restaurants.
I think Elizabeth Quay is very beautiful, its best to go at least twice if you are visiting Perth, because it has a different experience at day and night. At night the lights come out on the bridge and under the ferry, and you can take stunning photos.. Cycle or walk across the bridge, explore the public art, interactive water displays, get an ice cream or burger, and attend the occasional night markets and other events. One intriguing aspect is the unusual cobblestones selected, which are bumpy and rustic. I do wish there were more permanent installations to make more use of the large space.
Waste of taxpayers bucks I think. Seems like this place was just banged together. The public toilets feel like they are straight from a mine site. Concrete paths wind to nowhere. Water playground looks good for the little ones and carousel is pretty good. Not many food options as yet. Not worth going if u don't plan on taking kids. Thumbs down
Nice little precinct. Water park is good for the kids. The playground is a bit small with not a lot of shade for parents but play equipment good and next door to a cafe. Good to visit for a short trip or to catch the ferries out.
Family always enjoys an afternoon or evening here with the beautiful breezes and views of the lights hitting the water. Hopefully will be even better after all the construction is done. 4 stars during an event as we have more food, games and of course, fireworks. Evening well spent.
