The Old Mill Theatre is a wonderful theatre to visit. The production was a farce called Touch and Go. Very comical and entertaining, the timing excellent. The building itself is very interesting and had many roles before it was used as a Theatre.

The Old Mill is one of the oldest remaining structures in South Perth, from the settling of the colony in 1829. Without the Mill, the settlers would have been unable to mill their grain and they would have starved. South Perth people will have followed the saga of the Old Mill, from the time of its near demolition in the 1960s to its restoration today. It is near the Swan River. Getting to the Mill is easy -- you can drive, or the bus stops virtually at the gate South Perth people take pride in this relic of Perth's early days. "Mill Point Road" is one of South Perth's main thoroughfares.

Interesting part of Perth history in the south part of Perth. It’s not somewhere you will spend a great deal of time as the mill itself is not very well presented but as it’s free to enter it is still worth an hour of your time and just of the Esplanade. There are boards with information about the mill and it’s past.

The Old Mill is on the South Perth Peninsula. It dates from the earleist days of the Swan River Colony. Due to the corona virus, the Old Mill has been shut, but it is now reopening. You can open the doors to the cottage and the Mill, but you can't go in. It's easy to get to the Old Mill by bus. South Perth people regard. the Old Mill as part of their heritage.

I was doing the 2 bridges walk and chanced upon this towards the end of my walk in South Perth. You can go inside the mill and read some history. It is free to enter and worth spending half an hour here.

One of the most underpromoted tourist destinations in Perth is the Old Mill, which is one of the oldest colonial structures in Perth. The old mill was used to grind flour for the colonialists and once fronts a bay that has since been reclaimed for the expanding Perth population. The shed is filled with olden furniture from the colonial era and has been restored. Entry is by donation, of which the amount is up to you to give.

Perth landmark, and one of the oldest buildings in WA. Whether an international tourist will be impressed is open to speculation, considering many come from places with palaces etc 100s of years old. Long walk from the city either across the Narrows Bridge or from the ferry at South Perth.

The Old Mill has been around for an awfully long time. Some bright spark wanted to demolish it but fortunately those forces with a sense of continuity prevailed. The Old Mill has some other relics from Perth's colonial past that make a visit worthwhile..

Had a nice walk an stumbled across this. Perths oldest surviving building which is really well looked after by a hand full of volunteers. As mentioned by others, public transport to the door so no excuses to miss this. Great history about the place and a very important part of the community back in the day.

A great place to visit,kids will enjoy it. It is an old wind mill with all the old instruments of days gone by. There are horse carts. Go inside the mill to see how people used to live in the 1800.
