A quaint and ornate red-brick building dominated by an intricately designed, looming bell tower, Perth Town Hall boasts the unusual "honor" of being the only convict-built town hall in Australia. Completed in 1870, the building was constructed in the Victorian Free Gothic style, and includes a number of motifs in the shape of broad arrows and hangman’s ropes.

  • The Victorian Free Gothic Style architecture of Perth Town Hall is reminiscent of 14th to 16th century public buildings in Germany, Britain, and Brussels where there is a watch tower on one end and a market place beneath the hall. History has it that Perth Town Hall is Australia's only Gothic-style town hall and the only town hall built by convicts. The award-winning restoration of the building that was completed in 2005 has combined the antique aesthetics and the modern amenities to return this historic jewel to its original charm.
  • Able to have functions here, but the ventilation is not too great, so with a lot of people in summer it can get quite hot. Nice building though.
  • A classic town hall, looks great!
  • Beautiful town in Perth with fantastic Japanese ramen around. One of the nicest place to visit in Perth.
  • an old and pretty big brick building which still looks great amongst the modern architecture around it. its quite a sight too in the late evenings. i tune my watches to follow its clock.
