Bag storage

There is no facility to store bags at the venue. It is Perth Arena’s security policy to search bags before entry. Therefore we recommend that students do not bring school bags but instead, if necessary, a small bag with their personal items.

Venue lockdown

Once the event has commenced, the front doors of the Arena will be locked down for the duration of the event and manned by Perth Arena security to ensure no students leave the premises during the event.

Arrival and departure

A traffic management company has been employed to manage the arrival and departure process, including the major pedestrian crossings between the drop-off and pick-up points and Perth Arena. Schools will be provided with a Transport Management Plan closer to the event date.
