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.

This is a magnificent building which was once the home of the City of Perth, council chambers. It's an attractive piece of architecture which still gets well used during events including comedy festivals and by the perth council for some meetings. This building was built...More

Walked past - I'm clearly a sucker for beautiful buildings and architecture. You walk past this on your adventures so don't even need to make a special trip to see

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 Perth Town hall is good as you can go inside. It also has history on the steps and under the balcony on the ground floor. Well worth going with a free walking tour group as then you'll get more of a gauge of the...More

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
