Barracks Arch, Perth
(1.1/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
When you're in downtown Perth, take a moment to admire the Barracks Arch. It stands as the only remaining part of The Barracks, a three-story Tudor-style complex that resembles a medieval castle and housed convict-ship guards in pension. The local government planned to demolish the entire complex in the 1960s to clear space for a highway, but city residents protested and officials decided to leave the arch standing as a compromise. View it from the side to see how thin the structure is. Arrange to visit Barracks Arch and other attractions in Perth using our Perth itinerary builder.

  • 军营们在珀斯国会大厦附近,有点像澳门大三巴的意思,军营被拆了留下一个门。这里是珀斯一处重要地标,也是历史遗迹,一百多年前军营的缩影。
