Completed in 1870, this delightful Victorian Gothic landmark was completely restored in 2005. It is the only convict-built capital city town hall in Australia, and a fragment of the original convict roll is on permanent display in the foyer with other City of Perth memorabilia. Generally open 11:00AM-1:00PM weekdays, but phone 08 9229 2965 first because it is sometimes closed for private functions. Free historic tour every Thursday at 2:00PM.

Having survived the civic vandalism to which Perth is prone, the Perth Town Hall has been restored to its original form. It really is a very attractive building, and thanks go to the convicts who built it. The Town Hall was opened in 1870 and has been the location of many events, including the much-loved Wildlife Show. If you had... More

Easy to visit and worth a picture but nothing spectacular. It is located near church row and near the central shopping malls.

Waited at the Visitor Information Kiosk on Thursday 2pm for the town hall tour. The guide was very friendly and shared with us a lot of information about Perth on our way to the Town Hall. On arrival, the personnel at the Town Hall told the guide that it was closed for guided tours as there was a function going... More

One the most beautiful town halls I have seen so far. It is also serve as clock tower. If you have to go to the Hay street you should be able to spot it. It is more beautiful during the clear day with blue sky and is perfect for photographers.

Back in the 1930's this was the tallest building in Perth. At the west end of Hay Street Mall so if your visiting Perth will probably walk past it at some stage. You can go inside. The guy at the desk doesn't bite (at least not when I visited), and its free. Not a lot to see inside though.

This town hall although not at all large, was built by convicts and free men between 1867 and 1870. The foundation stone for Perth Town Hall was laid on 24 May 1867 by Governor Hampton in a ceremony involving a lot of pomp and parade. It is situated in the heritage precinct of the Perth city.

This is a very nice brick built building that stands on the site of the place where the first tree wasn cut down to mark the founding of Perth. It is dwarfed by modern glass buildings but still retains its dignity. It has a nice clock tower and looks great when it is lit up at night.
