What happens to the nice Chinese restaurant , the Grand Palace ?

This should have happened a long time ago, but it's great to see some concrete plans in place (no pun intended) and some dollars committed now. Congratulations to the government for seeing this through - it will become such a significant part of Perth ... something that many future generations will enjoy! Well done!

good grief this is abysmal - looks like Waterworld on the Gold Coast. So we are aiming to get rid of the thing that makes our city attractive and different - so we can look like every other man-made smelly inlet with fake nautical theme fish and chip shops. Time to leave.

Well Done Mr Premier Lets have our own water front area the size that Perth can handle for now. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart has something (different scales of course). Love the idea of bringing the water closer. It will be the best meeting spot in Perth Lets get some rubber on road with the project and support it.
