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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
