Perth and Western Australia Meeting Planners Guide : 2016-2018 Meeting Planners Guide
Marine and water Surrounded by 12,500 kilometres of coastline, WA naturally leads research into water-based industries such as shipbuilding, recreational boating, commercial fishing, aquaculture, tourism and marine research facilities. Other highlights include: • Australian Marine Complex at Cockburn Sound (shipbuilding, oil and gas platforms, underwater structures, subsea equipment). • World-leading production of light-weight, high-speed ferries and a range of ship-building. • West Coast Rock Lobster Fishery - one of the most valuable single-species fisheries in Australia, complementing other valuable seafood production. • Innovations in desalination and wave power technology for coastal towns. Developments for the future While Western Australia provides a plethora of natural attractions and stunning coastlines across our large, looming landscape, closer to home there are bigger things on the horizon: • $2.6 billion Elizabeth Quay - an epic waterside precinct that links the city to our iconic Swan River. • $580 million Perth Airport link - major upgrades to domestic and international terminals. • $1.5 billion Perth Stadium - a multipurpose, world-class venue that will cater for corporate events. • $1.1 billion Swan Valley Bypass - vital link to reduce traffic and boost tourism to the region. • $5.2 billion Perth City Link - connecting the cultural hub of Northbridge and the foreshore to the CBD. • $1.3 billion Crown Perth - an integrated entertainment precinct on the Swan River with world-class facilities, restaurants and accommodation, including a casino and 33 restaurants and bars. 2016-18 Meeting Planners Guide
