The City of Perth has over 900 specialty shops, with plenty to tempt the adventurous shopper.
Perth’s city centre is a shopping hub and a dependable retail therapy hotspot that can be enjoyed seven days a week. From unique designer goods to major department stores the city’s rich mix of retail outlets encompasses the latest in fashion, style and technology.
Shoppers can devour the retail offerings of the central city by walking via the covered overpasses and colourful arcades. Originally created to help pedestrians traverse the wide city blocks, arcades including Carillon City, Piccadilly, Plaza and Trinity Arcade have each developed their own distinctive character.
London Court, with its Tudor façade and ornate clockfaces, continues to be a popular drawcard for visitors and locals alike. While recently opened arcades such as enex100 and Wesley Quarter are providing new reasons for people to visit the city.
The Murray and Hay Street Malls are lined with jewellery, fashion and souvenir shops, while the ultra chic King Street is the centre of Perth's sophisticated West End and is home to designer styles and exclusive boutiques. Hay Street also abounds in outdoor adventure stores to kit you up for your next foray into the wilderness.
Bargain hunters can head to Harbour Town on Wellington Street for a great assortment of goods, from sporting gear to homewares, at discounted prices.
As well as the most comprehensive range of shops, the city also has the most convenient shopping hours in the metropolitan area, with seven-day shopping all year round.
