Reflect: The Making of Manning, A Utopian Vision of Perth Suburbia


Have you ever looked at your suburb from above? Why are the streets where they are? Is it all just an accident of geography?

As returned soldiers and refugees streamed into WA after the Second World War, authorities began to look at two solutions – the scrubby southern wilderness of South Perth, and the utopian ideas of Sir Ebenezer Howard.

Join the City’s Local History Librarian on an expedition into urban planning, learn about the origins of Welwyn Avenue, and discover just how globally relevant our little community of Manning really is. Book
