New ways to discover your City

Media Release 29 July 2022

The new Discover South Perth website launched this week to let residents and visitors delve into the history and culture of the City of South Perth.

It is filled with interesting facts about the region’s development and the stories behind some of our most loved landmarks, including the Old Mill, Mindeerup, Millers Pool, the Windsor Hotel and Ferry Tram.

Mayor Greg Milner said community members, tourists and visitors could use the website to take a self-guided walking tour to learn more about the events and people who shaped our beautiful City into what we see today.

“Discover South Perth highlights the fascinating development of our City from its beginnings in the early 1800s to a thriving urban community of more than 46,000 residents,” he said.

“The South Perth community has played a significant role in the development of the Perth metropolitan area and both new and long-term residents have an opportunity to learn how our great City came to be."

Discover South Perth also includes the City’s new Artwalk Mindeerup public art trail, which features 16 public artworks in and around Mends Street and the South Perth foreshore.
