  • Loved the free exposition. Nice small museum, well organised in small rooms and easy to navigate. Pictures are from the student award exposition. I posted my fav pieces.
  • I've always loved this place, decent priced pints within the cultural centre, I wish they could get the outdoors area looking a bit nicer /cleaner but I guess it's Northbridge.
  • exhibition was quite small, but relatively interesting. if you have an hour to kill, why not visit
  • Compared to the Contemporary Arts Museum in Sydney this is far less accessible for someone outside the craft, but it is nonetheless pretty to look at.
  • Okay there's always something interesting to see at PICA and it's different as you'd expect from contemporary art. There's also good food and drinks at the PICA bar on the corner too.

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
