If you have often passed by here and ever wondered what it is actually like, I suggest you take a short detour. The restoration of the place, though some years past, is superb. If you are a senior looking for something to do, try their...More

Constructed in 1867 and situated on the corner of Hay and Barrack streets in Perth, this town hall houses a memorable tribute and a scale model of HMAS Perth I, lost in WWII, and the ship's bell from her younger namesake HMAS Perth II.
