The basics

The whitewashed stone mill and cottage sit in the suburb of South Perth, near the Perth Zoo and just across the river from Perth’s Central Business District (CBD), making the Old Mill accessible for visitors during a day of sightseeing in the city center. The mill is not usually part of city tour itineraries, but guided tours are available on site for those who visit on their own and wish to learn more about Perth’s early colonial days and European settlement in Western Australia.
