WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Please arrive from 5.30pm onwards to ensure all road closures and event equipment is safely in place.
When finding a location please listen to directions from SES Volunteers, Security Staff and Event Staff. Your safety and the safety of others is very important to all involved with the event.
To ensure everyone's safety, DO NOT sit on the kerb or edge of the road when roads are OPEN.
WHERE SHOULD I SIT TO WATCH IT?
The best pageant viewing location is between Barrack Street and Irwin Street.
There is NO public viewing of the pageant WEST of the start line.
We recommend children sit at the front (behind the blue line) and adults stand behind, ensuring everyone has the best view of the pageant.
Every year, the pageant draws very large crowds. Please consider this when planning your arrival time and viewing location. The start line at William Street is a very popular location, however not always the best spot to view the pageant. We suggest you move EAST down the pageant route to secure the best possible viewing location.
WHERE IS THE ACCESSIBLE VIEWING AREA?
The accessible viewing area is located on St Georges Terrace (Northern side), between Victoria Ave and Irwin Street and is within in close proximity of the accessible toilets located on Irwin Street.
The space is barricaded off and controlled by security to allow all wheelchair users entry, along with one carer/loved one.
The space is not elevated, however it backs directly onto St. Georges Terrace, so other spectators do not have the opportunity to stand in front of the area and block the views of those in the accessible viewing area.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
It is suggested you bring a blanket and cushion to sit on. Please do not bring chairs.
The Alinta Energy Christmas Pageant is an ALCOHOL FREE event.
Pets are not permitted at the event with the exception of assistant animals.
WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY RUBBISH?
Keep Perth beautiful.
Girl Guide volunteers will be there on the night handing out Keep Australia Beautiful rubbish bags for your convenience. Please use these bags for all your rubbish and then deposit them in one of the bins located along the pageant route. You can also help keep our city clean by taking your rubbish with you.
HOW TO GET THERE?
There will be plenty of additional trains running to get you to and from the event.
To travel on any Transperth service, you need to purchase a ticket or use your SmartRider. Please refer to Tickets and Fares for more information.
In order to assist with clearing the crowd as quickly as possible after the event, Joondalup Line passengers will need to board at Perth Underground only (and not Elizabeth Quay Station), and Mandurah Line passengers will need to board at Elizabeth Quay Station only (and not Perth Underground) between 8.30pm and 10.00pm.
