What you'll do
Arcades & Laneways is the most comprehensive guided historical tour in Perth. This tour of Perth focuses on the arcades and laneways of the city - places you might not otherwise discover. Discover the evolving small bar scene and hidden gems on this information- packed walking tour through the heart of Perth's lesser known streetscapes with a friendly 'Sandgroper' as your guide. The arcades and laneways provide interesting routes to navigate through the city centre as well as great spots to check out hip and happening events and the proliferation of street art. Together we will explore the modern day secret nuggets of the Central Business District plus new developments including the Bell Tower, Elizabeth Quay and Yagan Square. To really get know the city, you’ll get stories about the quirks of its history, heritage, culture, and architecture - a plethora of Perth highlights! Rather than get bogged down in dates and historical data, your passionate guide will show you why Perth is the way it is, and what really makes this city tick. Your Perth tour finishes up at a local pub in Northbridge, where the first drink is on us!
