Skyworks Parking Restrictions start from 6am

If you have never been to the Australia Day fireworks in Perth, you may be caught out by the arbitrary road closures and parking restrictions around the South Perth and City foreshore on Saturday. Also, with the construction of the Perth Waterfront, quite a large area of the City's foreshore will not be available. 

The City of Perth has a PDF brochure which you should consider printing out before Saturday to familiarise yourself with what time the roads are closed. You can download a copy here.
