Thanks to its regal history, Pier Street comprises an eclectic collection of heritage buildings, where entrepreneurial business owners deliver a wide range of services and offerings, nestled in a fast-growing foodie streetscape.

In the 1840s, Pier Street was one of the earliest streets built in Perth, running all the way down to Government House and Pier Street Jetty. The jetty was built so the Governor’s wife at the time didn’t have to get her skirts wet while entering the boat.

The precinct’s unique appearance comes with an amalgamation of diverse period buildings including the Salvation Army Fortress and Federation period commercial buildings, the 1960s Railton Temperance Hotel and the later twentieth century Sebel Perth Hotel.

The street is also home to several vintage retailers and traditional restaurants, including Australia’s longest standing independent record store.
