Culture isn't just a skyline

Change to Perth's culture will take more than just a couple of construction projects.

If you are hoping that the Perth Waterfront and Burswood Stadium projects will make us the Melbourne of the west, then think again. Tony McManus spoke to Rob Adams, town planner for the City of Melbourne, who says cultural change will is a slow process.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Tell me what's "cultural" about Melbourne..pleease! I travel there every other week on business. This whole wannabe quest that Perth's on is laughable. We wanna have buildings like somewhere else, wanna have roads and trains like other cities (that's a laugh in itself), we wanna be cultured (mate) like other places. WHY? What's wrong with being yourself and developing your own culture? It's different, and interesting, and that alone is why tourists want to come here. Are you embarrased by who and what you are? Feel inadequate in the company of Parisians or New Yorkers? Believe me, there is NOTHING cultured about an over supply of coffee shops, cloned bars, and imitation ethnic restaurants, all stuck in a grey cold and depressed city called Melbourne. Unless you call AFL cultured...mate!

  • The City of Perth has very little "character". Everything that was is gone.
    There's a few buildings and arcades; a bit of this and that, but no coherence.
    Barrack street is a mess, St Georges Terrace is still a wind tunnel and the less said the better about Riverside Drive and the bridges leading to, and from it, let alone the round-abouts which no one gives way to and then the confusing traffic lights.
