    "The State Government is delivering a new strategy to improve the cultural offerings in the heart of the city.


    "The rejuvenation of the Perth Cultural Centre, including the McGowan Government's $10 million investment to activate the Art Gallery rooftop and $395.9 million new museum, is creating a vibrant hub for cultural and social experiences in this State.


    "The Perth Cultural Centre draws 10 million visitors each year. This is an exceptional opportunity for local businesses to showcase the best our city has to offer and attract tourists to our capital city for longer."  


    Comments attributed to Perth MLA John Carey:


    "Along with the New Museum project, these new business opportunities in the Perth Cultural Centre will further activate the precinct.


    "I am looking forward to seeing these exciting new initiatives take shape."
