CHEVRON GARDENS Chevron Gardens is the place to dance, swoon, tremble and holler. While the sounds of the city will be your focus, you are invited to indulge the other senses. Perth's finest restaurants will tantalise your taste buds while the selection of summer drinks will keep the spirits high!

In 2018 the Perth Festival Scent is Damask Rose. Iranian migrant, Mahin Nowbakht has inspired this year's scent with her precious donation of a bottle of rosewater to our Museum of Water.
Mahin arrived with rosewater and Damask Rose petals when she migrated to Perth 14 years ago and it speaks profoundly of the connection that this ancient flower gives to her homeland and culture. "Rosewater is like holy water to me," she said. "Its scent makes me feel calm and at peace."
Since ancient times, roses have been used medicinally, nutritionally, and as a source of perfume. Damask Rose tells a story of our multicultural community and is a gift between cultures that will be infused in venues, food and drinks across the city with our partners. And look out for a very special event as part of our Museum of Water public programmes that will celebrate the sounds and tastes of Persia.
