Perth Town Hall

Built in 1870, Perth Town Hall is Australia’s only Gothic-style town hall, and the only town hall built by convicts. 

An award-winning restoration has returned this historic jewel to its original charm. Antique aesthetics and modern amenities combine in this grand, one-of-a-kind venue. 

The Hall is open for public inspection from 10am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday, unless hired for a private function. For tour information call us on (08) 9461 3333.

On Tuesdays at 11am the Town Hall hosts the Tuesday Morning Show, a free weekly community event aimed at seniors, with a program of musical entertainment, speakers and more. The Lower Foyer also hosts art and informational exhibitions regularly.
