Highway to Hell

Sun 01 Mar

Canning Highway

Perth Festival will transform Canning Highway from Canning Bridge to the Old Fremantle Traffic Bridge into a rolling stage during its Highway to Hell closing event, paying respect to AC/DC’s original front man Bon Scott.

Additional services will be running for the event but remember to plan your journey and allow plenty of extra travelling time as services will be busy.

Travelling with your family?

Grab a $13.10 FamilyRider (cash only) and travel with 7 people (up to two standard and five concession tickets) there and back – this means you can avoid the crowds at ticketing machines on your way home! Visit Tickets and Fares for more information.

Below is a guide to help you plan your journey to Highway to Hell. Remember buses and trains are expected to be extremely busy so please be patient.
