Venues ranged from brand-spanking new to heritage-listed, and all were interesting and inspiring in their own ways. We also learnt a fair bit about Perth’s history just by touring certain places such as the 108 St Georges Terrace (previously Bankwest Tower), Council House and Moana Chambers (a ballroom back in its heyday!).

We got 16 places ticked off our hit-list and, though there’ll be plenty more blog posts to come showcasing the great hidden and not-so-hidden spaces around Perth, here is our highlight reel.
