About this event

How Good Is Perth? Three decades after Channel 10 first posed this question (its 1988 Perth launch is on YouTube - watch it) and although ScoMo might have co-opted it for his own rhetorical catchphrase - it's still a bloody good question!

So how good is Perth, actually? Super good? A bit good? Not good at all? Who is it good for? How do we make it gooderer?

This Hypothetical will see former ABC News Anchor James McHale lead our guests through an elaborate unfolding scenario, challenging the perceptions and assumptions of our panel and audience. They're not the usual suspects, either...

Everyone has an opinion about how good Perth really is - so let's get 'em out and put 'em to the test.

How good is Perth?! Join us to find out.

Presented by Anglicare WA.
