Our fair city did not just happen. Throughout our young history there were remarkable people who helped build, mould and fashion the state in which we live now. This year the 7th annual Perth Heritage Days will celebrate these famous, and not so famous people who shaped Perth. From the original owners of the land and the warrior Yagan, to the founder of the colony Captain James Stirling, pioneer Georgiana Molloy, explorers Ernest Giles and John Forrest, social reformer Mary Holman, gold miners Paddy Hannan and Daniel Connor, Catholic Nun Ursula Frayne, developer Thomas Malloy and anthropologist Daisy Bates, they all had an influence on our society and direction of its future, now our past. Their stories will be told through different mediums including; exhibitions, guided walks, fascinating talks by passionate presenters, interactive drama and music and associated open buildings where the spirit of the person can speak for themselves. Perth Heritage Days 2015 plan to bring the past alive and make the weekend a journey of exploration, fun and adventure for all the family.
