Welcome to PERTH!

Welcome to Perth City - the Capital of Western Australia.

Perth's superb position on the banks of the Swan River (Derbarl Yerrigan) and nearby hectares of natural bushland in Kings Park make for a city centred on the great outdoors and perfect for sightseeing.

Kaya. This is Wadjuk Country, where the sun always shines, and our nightlight is on to welcome you. The spirit of the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) is at the heart of everything we love. Ferries and sailboats start and end their journeys at stunning quays and jetties with restaurants and alfresco dining set against its iconic backdrop.

A pretty city with an infectious personality. A beacon of youth and vitality. With edgy street murals, lively laneways, bridge climbs and rooftop bars, museums and galleries, family attractions and a melting-pot metropolis of food, music and culture, you won’t be short on things to do during the WAMED Festival!

Workshops will be held at the Kings Street Arts Centre, 357 - 365 Murray Street, Perth.

The workshop venue is on the top floor (a lift is available) of this gorgeous building and features fully sprung floors, mirrors and plenty of space for our popular workshops! The KSAC is only a block's walk away from the Perth Underground train station and there are plenty of parking options around, from His Majesty's Car Park right next door, to the Wilson Car Park a minute's walk down Murray St.

The Silver Anniversary Show is playing at the Tricycle Theatre (The 'Trike') at 65 Woodsome St, Mount Lawley. The Trike features tiered seating and sits in the grounds of the Mount Lawley Senior High School. There is tons of free parking at the theatre and this is a quick 15 minute drive from the city centre (or a 25 minute bus ride on any of the 11 buses that go past). Check out the Transperth website for a quick and easy journey planner.

The Reflection Gala Ball will be held at the University Club of Western Australia, Entrance 1, Hackett Drive, Crawley, in the stunning grounds of UWA, so rock up a little early to snap some stunning selfies in the lush gardens and among the classic architecture of this beautiful campus. This is a 12 minute drive, or catch a bus along Mounts Bay Road, enjoying the beautiful waterfront.

The Grande Bazaar will be held at the Loftus Recreation Centre, 99 Loftus St, Leederville. There is ample free parking at the centre, or this is a hop, skip and a jump from the Leederville Train station, a single stop north of the city on the Joondalup line. We are lining up a food truck (and coffee!) for this specatcular day of shopping, performances and fun!

Food & Drink Information

Free tea and coffee is available at the workshop venue. Our aim is to facilitate an environmentally sustainable event with minimal waste, so please bring your own refillable water bottle and coffee cup for free tea and coffee or purchase a WAMED Eco-cup for $10. Being in the heart of the city, we are surrounded by cafes and restaurants offering a multitude of choices and it's a 5-minute walk to the nightlife of Northbridge with fabulous multicultural cuisine.


The Silver Anniversary Show is scheduled after dinner, so you may like to make the most of the many great eateries in Perth before heading to the Theatre, and there will be light refreshments on sale.

The Reflection Gala Ball is fully catered with a buffet dinner and drinks included. 


Getting Here


Our new Train Line! Did you know that Perth has opened a new train line to the airport!?
I know! Welcome to the 90s here in WA!
With new stations open at High Wycombe, Airport Central and Redcliffe, the Airport Line connects through to the Perth CBD and it also makes it easier, quicker and less expensive to get to and from the airport.

For those on Qantas and Jetstar flights (Terminals 3&4) - you'll access the Redcliffe Station, Just 15 minutes from the CBD and for those on Virgin (Terminals 1&2), you'll board at the Airport Central Station - which is just 18 minutes from the CBD and an easy connection through to every other line in Perth. You can purchase cash tickets from the machine on the platform, or buy a SmartRider for easy tap-and-go travel.

Taxis/Uber/Didi/Ola: A car trip between Perth city centre and Perth domestic or international airport terminals will take approximately 20-30 minutes depending on the day and time of day you are travelling. The airports have a number of taxi ranks and rideshare pickup points, just check the relevant app for information. Use our Facebook group to find fellow dancers needing a lift and share!

Public Transport: To plan your journey, visit the Transperth website or phone the Transperth Infoline on 13 62 13. Trains depart every 10-15 minutes Mon-Sat, and every 30 minutes on Sundays.
