Heritage is about the things from the past which
are valued enough today to save for tomorrow.

News & Events



Presented by Heritage Perth in conjunction with the City of Perth, the season of “Lunchtime Liaisons” will chart the history of Perth and WA.

During a one-hour presentation each month, Richard Offen, Executive Director of Heritage Perth will deliver an account of past events and developments which form a chart of our State’s history.

From our very humble beginnings, our rather slow progress to the colony finally making life comfortable we grew, and continued to grow as necessity demanded.

Our local history is a testament to a city and State which went onto explore half a continent, discover gold, and move rapidly into the 20th Century.
