Perth Arena Events
Inaugurated in 2012 near the site of the former Perth Entertainment Centre, the modern Perth Arena is part of the Perth City Link, a major urban renewal project connecting the Freemantle railway with Perth's downtown area. This state-of-the-art venue features a bold design and a retractable roof. Along with its special acoustic design, these features allow the arena to cater to live concerts of all sizes, making Perth Arena one of Australia's finest venues for both local music festivals and international acts. Aside from hosting musical acts, the main arena space boasts a permanent tennis court, as well as catering for other live sporting events throughout the year such as basketball and rugby. Five additional function rooms also make the venue a popular choice for conferences and corporate events. Visitors wishing to find tickets for upcoming concerts and competitions can find ticketing information on the Perth Arena website events page.
