The Old Mill in South Perth is one of Perth’s best known landmarks. Built in 1835 and operating until 1859, the mill produced 680kg of flour per day at its peak. Since ceasing production, the mill has been used as a hotel, a residence, a wine saloon and a poultry farm.

In 1992, the Old Mill was granted to the City of South Perth to commemorate the centenary of the founding of Local Government in South Perth (1892). The stone buildings and site were repaired and upgraded and were then vested in the National Trust.
