  • Burswood Peninsula

The Burswood Peninsula has the potential to become the largest planning, investment and delivery partnership for Perth over the next decade.

Counterbalancing the pull of Perth’s Central Business District, the Peninsula is already a thriving entertainment and tourism hub. Additionally it is a desirable residential spot which will absorb much of the Town’s population growth.

Comprising 285 hectares of land just three kilometres from the CBD, Burswood Peninsula is home to Crown Perth, Optus Stadium, the Camfield, Burswood Park, Belmont Park Racecourse and the State Tennis Centre.

An estimated 100,000 people will visit the precinct during major stadium event days, with up to 30,000 on non-event days. Billions of dollars have been invested in the recently completed 60,000 seat Optus Stadium, the expansion and redevelopment of Crown Perth and the Belmont Park Racecourse redevelopment by Golden Group. These venues are supported by new rail and bus transit systems which have helped shape the Burswood Peninsula into a world-class entertainment precinct and strengthen Perth’s role as the western gateway to Australia.

The expansion of the Burswood entertainment precinct has already seen the creation of thousands of jobs, with more expected as planned higher density, transit-oriented residential developments come to fruition. The construction is a boost to the skilled trades sector with entertainment and residential development at Belmont Park and Burswood Station East driving longer-term demand for jobs in the tourism and service industries.
