What not to bring to watch the Skyworks (Perth Skyshow)

The City of Perth and City of South Perth Special Event Local Law limits people from bringing large stereos, spas, fridges and other large objects to the foreshore on Australia Day………………………………yes, believe it or not but people have tried to bring these things in the past !

These items including loud stereos may be impounded.

You are welcome to bring any picnic and shade equipment that can easily be transported by foot and taken with you after the show……………or you could avoid all the hassle and watch the spectacular Australia Day Skyshow from your own private balcony at Metro Hotel Perth.

Making the most of the City of Perth Australia Day Skyworks

Pedestrian and bicycle access

South Perth
The City of South Perth is introducing fenced off and supervised bike parking at various events in 2010. The Australia Day Family Zone will be the first event to introduce this new service. Don't forget to bring your bike lock.

At Sir James Mitchell Park there will be an emergency services area fenced between the river and Mill Point Road. The paths in that area may be closed during the day and all pedestrians and cyclists may be required to detour around the emergency services area.

Narrows Bridge
The Narrows Bridge eastern footpath will be closed all day. Pedestrians and cyclists will be directed onto the western footpath.

Horseshoe Bridge
Pedestrian access from Wellington Street to Roe Street via the Horseshoe Bridge will be possible from 8pm on Australia Day.
