A vibrant and stylish 21st century Perth has been promoted to rest of the world thanks to a video produced by Monocle called ‘Perth: opportunity and regeneration’. The more than nine minute video examines how Perth has been in constant motion over the past decade and how it has been able to reinvent itself as more than just a mining city, into a more liveable, vibrant and attractive capital city.

Committee for Perth CEO, Marion Fulker was interviewed as part of the program, focusing in particular on the recent opening of Elizabeth Quay.

“I’ve met with the Monocle team a few times in London over the past decade. They have always been interested in what is happening here. When they decided to send a member of their team to Australia and wanted to feature Perth as part of that, I took it as a sign that we are coming of age and they were keen to feature our transformation to the rest of the world,” said Mrs Fulker.

Acknowledgement of Country

The Committee For Perth acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
