Elizabeth Quay to open on January 29


West Australians and visitors will be treated to a spectacular display of lasers, lights and water fountains when Elizabeth Quay opens to the public on Friday, January 29, 2016. The free show will light up the inlet at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm to coincide with a weekend of entertainment and performances from the hugely successful Fringe World Festival. The laser and light show will run every evening hourly between 8pm and 10pm for three weeks from January 29, 2016.

While onsite recently to mark the completion of the pedestrian and cyclist bridge, Premier Colin Barnett said: “In less than two months, visitors will be able to run, cycle or even ride a segway across the bridge as they wander around the promenades and explore the many activities, events and attractions on offer. This precinct is for all West Australians and I encourage you to take advantage of what’s on offer.”

A new partnership with Fringe World will see the festival host an extended season in the precinct from January 29, 2016 to March 6, 2016. Planning and Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said festival organisers would recreate the original fairground which was located at the riverside end of William Street in the 1920s.

The Fringe World Fairground will feature an eclectic mix of performance, theatre and music including roving fairground acts, an outdoor roller skating rink, carnival rides and amusements, food and drink and lots more. Together with the Perth International Arts Festival, Fringe World opens an exciting calendar of events which will showcase Elizabeth Quay as Perth’s leading entertainment and leisure precinct.
