  • Concerts here are especially great but the art centre itself is a great building with lots to check out. Add it to your list when visiting Freo!
  • Fantastic night at Bernard Fanning concert. Amazing acoustics. Beautiful venue
  • Went to check out a surf exhibit. It was well put together and free :)
  • This place is just beautiful! The front courtyard and cafe is a wonderful place to sit and be inspired. The art gallery itself displays constantly changing exhibitions. Most are excellent, but you might be unlucky. The centre also plays host to a wide variety of free and not-so-free music concerts.
  • One of my favourite places in freo. Historical building. Always nice expo in there. Awesome in summer with the Sunday concerts and pizza.
