Elizabeth Quay

Here is a selection of my photos taken of Elizabeth Quay .

Elizabeth Quay is a waterfront development on the Swan River, Perth.  The project commenced in 2012 and opened to the public in 2016.

The project involved construction of an inlet.  The following two photos show the inlet under construction.

Florence Hummerston Kiosk is a heritage listed building that had to be relocated to build Elizabeth Quay.   Each part of the building was labelled and rebuilt in order.  It was originally constructed in 1928 as a tearoom and changing room for an adjoining sporting facilities.  It is also known as the Esplanade Kiosk.
