Visit Perth launch and opportunities

The Town is working with the other inner city local governments to deliver a new Visit Perth tourism website.

Visitors can explore neighbourhoods and browse events, things to see and do, shopping experiences and eating and drinking establishments for the inner city.

It’s a great opportunity for local businesses to get their name out there and be promoted widely to a large audience.

If you have any upcoming events, or wish to be featured on the website, then send an email through to

Please note, this is a tourism website so the content must align to its purpose.
