This archway which can be found on the West Perth side of Saint Georges Terrace is all that remains of the old Army Barracks. The area was reused to house the freeway construction with only the gateway arch being saved. It's good that they keep...More

The Barracks Arch is all that remains of the barracks that housed the Pensioner Guards in the late 19th century. The Arch is at the corner of Malcolm St and Elder St. Unfortunately the Arch spoils the view from Parliament House down St George's Terrace....More

We were in the area on the way to Kings Park and decided to take a slight detour to check it out. Its nice enough to look at, but is surrounded by roads and Traffic lights, so it ruined it a bit for me.

The Barracks Arch is another place steeped in history in Perth. But without local knowledge I'd advise going to the City of Perth tourist information centre at the Murray Street Mall, and book in with one of their free tours. They can then give you...More

The Barracks Arch sits near to the freeway which almost lead to its demise. It is a fine structure which has been preserved for future generations to admire.

The Arch is all that remains of the Pensioner Barracks and dates to 1866. In the 1960's the Government decided to demolish the buildings that comprised the Barracks; this caused a public outcry and the Royal Western Australian Historical Society formed a Barracks Defence Council....More

I'm surprised Barracks Arch isn't rated higher on Trip Advisor as it's one of my favourite places. It's a great view heading west on St George's Terrace to see Barracks Arch at the top of the hill, and it's a great piece of Perth history....More
