Perth Town Hall

Built in 1870, Perth Town Hall is Australia’s only Gothic-style town hall and its only town hall built by convicts.

Perth Town Hall by night

An award-winning restoration has returned this historic jewel to its original charm. Antique aesthetics and modern amenities combine in a grand and unique venue.

The venue is open for public inspection 10:00 am-4:00pm Monday-Saturday, unless hired for a private function.  

There is a small permanent exhibition of City of Perth memorabilia including a roll of the convicts who worked on the building, original old Town Hall playbills, photographic portraits of all Perth's  mayors and lord mayors, and  an impressive life-size painting of Sir George Murray, who our city was named for -- his  county seat was Perthshire, Scotland.

Tuesdays at 11:00 am the Town Hall hosts the Tuesday Morning Show, a free weekly community event aimed at seniors, with a program of musical entertainment, speakers and more.

The Lower Foyer also hosts art exhibitions on a regular basis.

Venue Hire

Upstairs, the original jarrah hammer-beam ceiling, dramatically lit, soars to 15 metres. Framed by three pointed arches, a restored Juliet balcony overlooks the Main Hall.

The Town Hall hosts  banquets, weddings, cocktail functions, exhibitions, launches, meetings, receptions, conferences and themed events for up to 400 (240 banquet style).
