Yagan Square is a place to meet, connect and experience Western Australia’s culture, heritage and landscape in the heart of Perth city.

The square offers a range of experiences - from green spaces and wildflower gardens, to a children’s play space and engaging public art.

Sample some of the best Western Australian produce in the Market Hall or Horseshoe Lane, or head outdoors and enjoy cultural programs, digital art and light shows on the Digital Tower and canopies.

The square, which is named after prominent Noongar leader Yagan (c1795-1833), reflects Aboriginal culture and offers an insight into Whajduk history.

  • Lovely venue! Beautiful design and lighting at night! I was here to do a kids event! My daughter and her cousin Mason were performing! They did pretty well and enjoyed playing in the water shallow water stream at this venue. It was a hot day so, I was kind of expecting it!
  • This is at the heart of the city centre. Neaby bus stop and train station is located. This place is decorated with colourful lights and/paints in special occasions. You can easily find a lot of restaurants nearby.. cultural programs are also arranged here... Car parks are located nearby on the street but is paid!!
