Hire and bookings

As you will be aware, the Australian Federal Government has issued a ban on non-essential outdoor gatherings of 500 people or more and non-essential indoor gatherings of 100 people or more. If you are planning to hold an event in the City of Perth boundary within the foreseeable future, please consider that it is unlikely it will be approved. The City of Perth is committed to providing a safe and healthy community and we advise you to please consider postponing your event.

For events later in the year, the City of Perth’s Activity Approvals team will continue to support event applications and will work with you to facilitate activation of the City.
