The Perth Town Hall is an elegantly restored heritage venue in the heart of Perth. Built on the highest point of the city, the hall stands almost on the spot at which Mrs Dance felled a tree to mark the founding of Perth in 1829. Construction of the hall commenced in 1867 and was completed three years later by convict labour. It remains the only town hall in Australia entirely built by convicts. A Victorian Gothic-styled building, the hall has been compared to 14th-16th century village public buildings in Italy, Germany, Brussels and Britain. It recently underwent a major restoration, with the process completed in 2005, and is now a popular venue for weddings, functions, banquets and civic receptions.
