Historic Hay Street | Guided Walk with Historian Richard Offen

Many people claim that Perth has virtually no heritage buildings left in its city centre, suggesting most of the older buildings were demolished in the 1960s and 70s to make way for the ‘concrete giants’ which now dominate the city skyline. Whilst it is true many of our older buildings have gone, there are still plenty left, most of which go totally unnoticed.

Join historian and author Richard Offen to discover the history of some of Perth’s superb heritage buildings contained on Hay Street, telling the stories of their origins and the people behind their creation.

From the City’s fine Town Hall to Perth’s answer to New York’s Art-Deco skyscrapers, Richard will demonstrate how important these places to the creation of Perth’s unique ‘sense of place’.
