Overview
More
Completed in 1870, this delightful Victorian Gothic landmark was completely restored in 2005. It is the only convict-built capital city town hall in Australia, and a fragment of the original convict roll is on permanent display in the foyer with other City of Perth memorabilia. Generally open 11:00AM-1:00PM weekdays, but phone 08 9229 2965 first because it is sometimes closed for private functions. Free historic tour every Thursday at 2:00PM.

The Perth Town Hall was built by convicts. It is one of the city's best-loved buildings. How it escaped the wrecker's ball is a miracle. The tacky lower section was replaced with period bricks, it now looks like it did in colonial times. The Town...More

the whole block has been restored to its historical best and to a very high standard, plenty of coffee shops and places to eat and free toilets, right next to the mall.

Town Hall was built by convict labour - they did an excellent job. The tower has a clock face on each of the 4 sides, which I'm told is unusual. There are boards on the ground floor giving historical information relating to the building. I...More

This is a fine old building in a city with few old buildings. We did not see any way into it but we viewed it from above (our hotel, next door, pool overlooked it) and from outside.

Include on your down town walking tour. Built by convicts this is an attractive building which stills stands proud surrounded by modern looming structures. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.
