Perth’s newest tourist attraction consists of 3 large, dome structures built to showcase the unique climates and environments of Western Australia, bringing all the unique attractions of WA to one place.
The idea behind the project is to reduce the need for tourists to travel long distances to experience everything WA has to offer.
The new tourist attraction was previously expected to be situated between Optus Stadium and Crown Towers, however Perth Airport raised their hands to facilitate the development. It will now be located on 15 hectares of land within the airport precinct.
The focus of the plan will be a strong indigenous component, with each dome linked by galleries and virtual reality theatres that demonstrate traditional ways of living, bush food, medicines, art and cultural expression.
A spokesperson for the Biome Project Adam Barnard states that this project would supercharge WA Tourism, firmly putting Perth on the map.
“Not only is this a global attraction that will supercharge tourism and create an extraordinary economic windfall for the state, but most importantly, it is an opportunity to change the narrative and our interaction with Aboriginal Australians once and for all.”
“We will build this project, it will be a centre of environmental excellence it will be a place the world wants to see.”
The three-stage development was initially expected to cost $650 million, but the businessmen are confident it can be fully funded by the private sector at $510 million, including by major international corporations.
