  • Only allows for 5G devices to connect to the wireless - indirect discrimination against people who cant afford apple devices or other expensive devices - People from low-socioeconomic backgrounds need to use libraries and free internet why create wireless free network which people from low socio economic backgrounds are going to face barriers to access?! So very disappointing from a State Library..this doesn't happen in other states over in the East.
  • Great place for studying or working. Great book collection and staff are very friendly.
  • great library and all but rules are a little outrageous? Had a tiny penny board on the first floor under my desk, was told that skateboards are not allowed and only allowed on the ground floor. Ok cool i wasnt even riding it, ok so maybe i can leave it at the reception and pick it up later so i can still study with friends. PSYCH, for some reason they cant do that either. come on, really? 1. wasnt even riding it in the library. 2. reception cant even let me leave it with them for me to pick up later? Pree retarded if you ask me
  • In awe of this library. So much variety and knowledge to share. The top level has genealogical research tools. I found notable that there is a kids section, a mapping/ surveying section and music score section among many others. Such awesome views of the city from the upper levels too and incredible staff.
  • Always a treat to visit. Aside from the vast range of books, the organised kids activities are the main reason why I love this place. They also have art exhibitions on occasion. Very knowledgeable staff.

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.
