Although smaller than Melbourne and Sydney, Perth has a big and diverse gay scene. The most popular venues can be found on Northbridge.
The city is changing its reputation from being quiet to booming! A new Arena has been built along with a new Culture Centre, State Theatre and a new harbour in front of the Central Business District called Elizabeth Quay.
The Perth International Arts Festival has joined with Perth Fringe Festival, Beaufourt Street Festival and many other events.
