Join an eclectic mix of Perth champions – entrepreneurs, history buffs, gourmands, creators, and tourism providers. Over nibbles and drinks, we’ll showcase the City’s coming of age tale told through Perth’s changing people, places and prospects. You’ll have an opportunity to download the Dark Stry mobile app to see history differently and try out our latest immersive experience. It’s a novel way to connect with fellow Perth champions. The event includes a grazing table, wine & soft drinks, and special early access to the Dark Stry Boom & Bust route. This event is made possible due to the generous sponsorship of the City of Perth and Spaces – The Wentworth.
