Come on a historical safari through Perth Zoo.
From an experiment of empire to malodorous eyesore, prestige project to conservation hub, Perth Zoo has been through many incarnations since 1898.
Join the City's Local History Librarian for a story of rogue elephants, kidnapped swans, tea-drinking chimps and much more.
Reflect is a series of local history talks presented by South Perth Local History Librarian Anthony Styan who will take you on adventures through archives and archaeology, and learn about the odd, original and often interesting history within the City of South Perth.
In the interests of more sustainable living please BYO mug and/or water bottle. Tea, coffee and cold filtered water will be available.
