Perth Town Hall is unlike any other Australian town hall. Governor Hampton made the decision to build a Town Hall for the citizens of Perth in 1866, as part of a public works program using the skills of the convict population. The Hall was officially opened on July 1, 1870 and is the only town hall in Australia to be built by convicts. An award-winning restoration, completed in 2005, made this stunning heritage building a well-equipped venue for performances, banquets, cocktail receptions, forums, weddings and community events and exhibitions. Open from 10am to 4pm.
