Perth landmark, and one of the oldest buildings in WA. Whether an international tourist will be impressed is open to speculation, considering many come from places with palaces etc 100s of years old. Long walk from the city either across the Narrows Bridge or from the ferry at South Perth.

I have driven past the Old Mill a zillion times as I headed from the city towards Fremantle and it has taken me 12 years to actually visit here. In the old days, it must have been in full operation, a bustling location that sided the banks of the Swan River. Like many Dutch and English mills, she is white... More

The Old Mill is located at the intersection of the Mill point rd and the gorgeous South Perth Esplanade. This historical piece has very well complemented the modern architecture of the South Perth offshore area. If you visit the South Perth offshore it is worthwhile to look into the Mill.

Shenton's Mill (now known as the Old Mill) is an interesting place to visit, and it's really a miracle, in Perth's fervour for knocking down old buildings, that it's still there. It dates from the very early days of European (British) settlement and there is some significant Aboriginal history to be taken into account when visiting it. You could google... More

South Perth offers so much. This old flour mill is right alongside the freeway and is just an amazing place to visit. There's plenty of parking, views across to the city and lots of interesting things to see. Built in the 1830's is one of the older buildings in Perth.
