are valued enough today to save for tomorrow.

Perth Town Hall

Perth Town HallThe Town Hall has become part of Perth’s folklore as well as part of the landscape. Had it not been for strong public opposition, the building would have been lost in the 1890s as the City Council decided it required a ‘more suitable’ building, presumably echoing the much grander town halls of Melbourne and Sydney.

Throughout its history the Town Hall has been the site of many colourful political debates and has provided a home for many of the administrative and operational functions of the early colony.
