Perth Cultural Centre. Rich in colours, street coffee and heritage buildings. This place used to have street posters pasted all over and it was a cool place for skateboarders to hang out. Now it looks very neat and more children and tourist friendly.
This is the cultural hub of Perth/Northbridge. It will be much better when the museum opens, but that's not for another couple of years. The art gallery is good and free entry. PICA is a cool place for a drink. There are a couple of good coffee places.
There's always something to do, see or eat here in the heart of Perth. Very family-friendly during the day with plenty to do and see such as AGWA (Art Gallery of Western Australia) and the Alexander Library. Lots of places to get a cup of coffee or a meal - the pretzels at It's All Good are delicious, and one of my favourite 24/7 Vietnamese noodle haunts is just across on the corner of Francis and William - it's cheap, fresh and I can't count how many times I've had the wonderful stir-fried noodles with roast duck!
Renovations taking place so I can't wait to see what the end result will look like however, in the short term it is a bit annoying. Otherwise, great place to relax and chill out with a fantastic variety of places to visit.
I don't think you can call a place cultural if it has no actual culture. A closed-for- renovations museum, a basic art gallery, and a very small modern art museum doesn't cut it.
Having all of the major museums close together, and near the main station is very handy. Also lots of nice places to sit.
Really nice area to put on festivals with the big screen and the urban orchard I'll usually take a telescope down with another Perth Observatory volunteer and do some street side astronomy
