Did you know Perth has its own unique network of arcades and laneways?  Due to the warm Perth environment, the city centre was built with many arcades to keep out the heat. In more recent times, these have included many underneath the city in air-conditioned comfort.

Through churches, shopping malls and public areas, these arcades (and laneways) form a pivotal part of life in an inherently warm environment. Art Deco, ultra modern and even faux-Tudor, these are wonderful parts of the city to be guided through and hear of their origins and impact on the city as a destination.

In recent years, some forgotten and under utilised back laneways in and around town have been brought back to life by encouraging new business, street art and interesting lighting. It is very easy to spend a couple of leisurely hours exploring these hidden yet bustling/vibrant elements of life in Perth.

With plenty of opportunities to grab a coffee on the go, have a tasty treat, or find some awesome places to come back to after the tour, your friendly guide will help set you up for an enjoyable adventure through the lesser known parts of Perth.
