BHP Water Park is located opposite the Elizabeth Quay Train Station and is the primary entry point to Elizabeth Quay. 

BHP Water Park is a welcoming free community space for West Australian families and visitors to enjoy. The major attraction at BHP Water Park is an interactive water feature that uses jets and lighting to create fun and exciting water choreography. 

During the day you can bring a picnic and a towel to splash around and as the sun sets you can take in the wonderful kaleidoscope of coloured jets as you relax on the tiered decking surrounds.

Pinjah is a colourful mosaic laid at bottom of the water park representing the Dreaming story of the creation of the Milky Way. 

The park is made possible by a generous $10million contribution from BHP.

Notification of temporary closures which may be required from time will be made on our Elizabeth Quay Facebook page.

This attraction is supported by BHP.
