There are guided walks of Perth City but if you have the time and inclination, you can have a very rewarding stroll under your own steam.

Perhaps begin at the Barrack Street Jetty and check out the impressive Bell Tower then head across Riverside Drive to the Supreme Court Gardens. Here you will find Perth’s oldest surviving building, the Old Court House. It is a simple little single-story cream building – it is typical Georgian architecture built along classical Greek lines in 1836.

A gentle walk through Stirling Garden will take you to Government House, the impressive residence of His Excellency Malcolm McCusker and his good lady, Tonya. Across St George’s Terrace, in Pier Street, is St George’s Cathedral with its fine jarrah ceiling.  Continue north up Pier Street to the Murray Street precinct, a National Trust classified area with a group of buildings funded by the rich gold rush era. When you reach Barrack Street, turn left and head to the Hay Street Mall and you will come across the delightful London Court (see previous post).

And, of course, for all your accommodation needs in this wonderful city – Rydges Perth.
