Discover another side of Como

News Update 6 September 2023

If you thought you knew all there was to know about Como, take a closer look with our new, interactive Como trail added to the Discover South Perth app.

Community members, tourists and visitors can use the app to take a self-guided walking tour of Como to learn more about what and who shaped this beautiful part of our City.

The tour takes you on a walk through history from the fun and frivolous past of Como Beach to the beginnings of the iconic Cygnet Theatre. 

To celebrate the launch, the City is running free walking tours of Como in August and September.

Join our Local History Librarian Anthony Styan for a tale of malapropic politicians, medical experiments (both goat and human), determined dogs, rockers, mods and too many tea rooms to count. How much do you really know about your Preston Street haunts?

The tour begins and ends at the Comer Street carpark, opposite the Pagoda.

Tours will run from 6pm on the following dates. 

  • Thursday, 7 September
  • Friday, 8 September
  • Thursday 14 September
  • Thursday 21 September
