Art Gallery of Western Australia

Split between the old and the new is the Art Gallery of Western Australia. One half of the gallery is housed in a new and not particularly attractive building (opened in 1979) while the rest is housed in the old Colonial Courthouse (built 1885-1886). In the old building you will find the historic Centenary Galleries a progression of non-indigenous art in Australia. Many of the styles were brought to Australia by early settlers. One artist is Louis Buvelot who arrived from Switzerland in 1865 and who had a noted influence on Australian landscape painters. There are also interesting carvings, one is of a 1907 ceremonial chair.

Open daily 10am to 5pm Admission is Free

Perth Cultural Centre

The cultural centre is just north of the main train station. Here you will find the WA Museum, the art Gallery, the library and theatre. There are several art pieces in the centre including this (1967) bronze statue of ‘Der Rufer’ (The Caller). The artist is Gerhard Marcks and the piece is owned by the Art Gallery of WA. The artist was inspired when he stood next to a man who called across a river to attract the ferryman on the other side.

Western Australian Museum

Western Australian Museum
I was really impressed with this museum. There were many different areas to explore, such as, the History of western Australia, Diamonds to Dinosaurs, and one of the only megamouths specimens in existance.

Local Hangings

The prison, which was not only Perth’s first, but one of the oldest buildings in the city, remained in use up until 1888. It was the favourite place for hangings.

The Old Courtroom

The old Gaol has been extensively restored. You can see the old courtroom which is largely unchanged in design except for a narrow staircase that led to it which has been replaced with another.
