Perth Town Hall at Night

Perth Town Hall Tour - iCity Kiosk Tours

Built between 1867 and 1870, the Perth Town Hall is a landmark and an important and unique building in Perth’s history.

It is the only major Australian town hall designed in a Medieval style. It is also the only Australian town hall built by convicts, providing evidence of their workmanship and technical skills which, during this time, were superior to those of free citizens. From the beginning, it was conceived not as Council offices but as a venue for civic events, private and community gatherings and celebrations. Major works completed in 2005 restored the Town Hall to its place as a popular Perth venue for the new century. 

On this guided walking tour, we explore the history and impact of the Town Hall as an important meeting place for the people of Perth, as well as its significance as the site where Governor James Stirling felled a tree to symbolise the founding of the Swan River Colony and the displacement of Whadjuk Nyoongar people.
