Handcrafted Merry Go Round at Elizabeth Quay

posted 10 Feb 2019, 05:27 by Happi Mess   [ updated 10 Feb 2019, 05:29 ]


A HANDCRAFTED Venetian carousel fit for Mary Poppins has been commissioned for Perth's Elizabeth Quay precinct.

Planning Minister Donna Faragher says the Italian- made ride is entirely hand-painted and will be set to traditional and modern carousel music.

"The traditional fairground ride has a combination of horses and carriages, featuring Venetian artworks on its internal panels. It has been created by some of Europe's best artisans," she said.

The merry-go-round was shipped to Perth from Italy 



The carousel is being brought to Perth by local businessman Rohan Milne and was fabricated in northern Italy.

The Minister praised Mr Milne's commitment to commission the piece of moving art for Western Australia and said the carousel was part of a wider program of activities which would take place at the waterfront precinct throughout the summer.




"Elizabeth Quay has had more than four million visitors since opening earlier this year and we are expecting strong crowds to enjoy its many attractions this summer," Ms Faragher said.

"The carousel will be a wonderful addition to Elizabeth Quay and will complement other activities including Christmas celebrations, summer markets and festivals."
