Historic Gardens of Perth: Western Suburbs

Following the success of Historic Gardens of Perth in 2011 the Australian Garden History Society (WA branch) will present a second exhibition from Friday the 7th to Sunday 16th September 2018.

The event, in the heritage listed Cottesloe Civic Centre, will focus on the western suburbs.

You will have the opportunity to find out how the garden, that most ephemeral of art forms, has shaped and coloured the landscapes of homes, institutions and parks in and around our suburbs for more than 150 years.

As part of the event the National Trust of Western Australia will run tours at three of their historic properties featured in the exhibition. These are Gallop House, Curtin Family Home and Wanslea.

Members of the Garden History Society and the National Trust will be present to provide information on historic aspects of the gardens.

The free tours will be held on Wednesday 12th September and bookings are essential. These can be made online through Eventbrite (Historic Garden Tours). You will be given details of times and addresses on completion of your booking. Numbers are limited so book early.
