    The Geodesic Dome

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Amongst the art deco style of the town, this dome really stands out. It was designed by an American architect, Buckminster Filler and was erected after a disastrous fire in 1968. At the time it was believed that the design was going to become popular. Obviously it didn’t, petrol pumps now sit outside.

    The museum is well advertised around the town and sits right in the middle of Vincent Street. The museum traces the history of aviation in WA and features the first privately built biplane in the State which was flown in 1930. Some of the more memorable moments in WA history are shown in photographs which are displayed around the walls with more information provided in printed form.

    The "Silver Centenary" a hand built Bi-plane is the main exhibit in the museum and made it's maiden flight on the 1st of July 1930. The construction of the bi-plane took Selby Ford and Tom Shackles (his cousin) more than two years to make.

    Beverley’s Main Street

    by keeweechic Written Jul 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vincent Street is the main thoroughfare of Beverley. The street features many fine examples of architecture which has been beautifully preserved. Some styles you will see are Edwardian, Federation and Art Deco. The town is small and in less than half a minute you can be through it. Sundays are quiet and most, if not all the stores are closed.
