Tourism has been identified as one of the five ‘super growth’ industries for Perth with the capacity to drive new jobs and economic expansion. The Town is highly competitive in the tourism space, with a number of regionally significant offerings, including Crown Perth, Optus Stadium, the Camfield, Burswood Park and Matagarup Bridge. In its first year of operation, Optus Stadium hosted a total attendance of more than two million people, with events ranging from AFL and cricket through to concerts by some of the world’s biggest performers. Matagarup Bridge not only provides pedestrian access between Burswood and East Perth, but is also providing further unique tourism experiences such as bridge climbs and ziplining.
