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. 

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. 

The Tuesday Morning Show has been cancelled until further notice. For further information, please ring 9461 3333 or email
