I would recommend if you are going to head to the Cloisters go to the City of Perth tour guides first, and go with a tour. They have some interesting history but not easy to uncover by oneself.

Very good place for lunch monday to friday. with quite a number of selection of fresh food. The dining area is bright with natural light. The only problem is there is no toilet for visitor. Nothing open on weekend.

The Cloisters Square is again it houses business. It is old but not as old as some places in the world. Australia isnt old at all.

Cloisters is one of perths oldest buildings that hasn't been destroyed. Just down the road from where the old army barracks were. Every Perth person should visit just once. Very much businesses and office workers
