Discover Multicultural Perth

Western Australia's many culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities have contributed significantly to Perth's development and have helped make it the vibrant city it is today.

As communities evolve, our shared cultural heritage will continue to grow and be enriched.

Many locations around Perth have historical or current significance to WA's CaLD communities. The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) has prepared three trails to help you discover this abundant and diverse heritage.

Each map notes the approximate time and distance for each walk.

If you know of any sites of significance to Perth's multicultural heritage, email OMI.
