The University of Western Australia campus is a well developed, well maintained campus. Beautiful tree lined walkways and large expanses of grass lawns. The architecture was also quite nice. However, the art museum was the highlight of the visit. Perhaps I was just fortunate in...More

The university is a lovely place to enjoy some peace and quiet. My father had a bench installed here to commemorate his late mother & father and I enjoyed sitting here and contemplating love and life.
