Perth Wasn't Built in a Day – Sensational Surveying, a Life Without Limits

Members of the Western Australian Institution of Surveyors will hold a series of interactive workshops where families and children will have the opportunity to use the instruments and experience firsthand, the method that surveyors used for the original surveys of the Perth Townsite in the 1880s.


They will have the opportunity to participate in a survey as an early surveyor and seeing how it was done when Perth was founded. The Institution members will have the latest surveying instruments on display for the public to see how advances in technology has impacted the method of surveys. Suitable for age 8+.
This is a free event to attend, no tickets needed.
