  • Fees and charges

    Please see the Banner and Flag Site Hire Fees and Charges in the Download section. 

    Fees include the installation and removal and hire of the masts/poles.

  • What else do I need to know?
    • The banner sites can vary in size and shape therefore some sites are not interchangeable. Terrace banners are manufactured to fit the terraces only, as are Forrest Place and the malls. The flags can be moved around between the flag locations.
    • The City of Perth is not involved in any of the manufacturing processes and cannot recommend any company for that purpose.
    • A copy of the proposed banner/flag artwork is required to confirm the booking.
    • Only events held within the City should be promoted. Applications for events which are in regional Western Australia will be considered if the applicant can show they will create a positive economic impact for the City.
    • An organisation must utilise all the poles in the required location. e.g. if the Causeway is selected, all seven poles must be occupied. Partial bookings are not permitted. If the full number of banners or flags for a required site are not supplied, the remaining space will be substituted with City of Perth banners or flags. The organisation will still be invoiced for the total cost of the site.
    • Bookings must coincide with the event they are promoting.
    • Administration has the discretion to accept, amend or reject applications for hire of the banner and flag sites. You will be notified of any changes via your nominated contact method.
    • The City is not responsible for any damage caused to your banners or flags during installation, removal and throughout the display period.
  • Where do I drop off and pick up my banner and flags from?

    Upon completion of the booking we will notify you of the address in Balcatta. You will need to arrange a drop of time and pick up time with our contractor.

  • Cancellation of booking

    Notice of a booking cancellation is required three months in advance. For bookings cancelled less than three months prior to the commencement you may be charged for the site as your booking has restricted the City of Perth booking these sites to another organisation.
