Elizabeth Quay opened to the public on the 29 January 2016. I’ve visited this soon-to-be iconic Perth attraction a few times since its official grand opening. And at different times of the day, both for recreational and photography purposes.
If the main purpose of your visit is to take some really great photographs, I’ve found the best time to head there is very early in the morning, before the sun starts to rise. There’s hardly anyone else around, so you’re pretty much guaranteed your pick of the prime spots.
I’m really happy with the photographs I was able to take, several of which have been liked and shared on social media, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Tweet Perth, Perth City, Tourism Western Australia and the City of Perth have all shared my images. Between them they have over 225,000 followers.
From what I’ve seen so far, I think Elizabeth Quay is going to be a terrific addition to Perth. This landmark $2.6 billion waterfront project has been designed to reconnect the city with the beautiful Swan River. There’s been an unnecessary disconnect between the river and the city for far too long. With Perth’s status as one of the most liveable cities in the world, Elizabeth Quay should help to revitalise the area and attract locals and visitors alike.
