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 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

The Barracks Arch was supposed to be demolished with the rest of the Barracks, which once held former soldiers. Courageous resistance by several people, including Peter Durack MLA, prevented this wanton vandalism. The reason the politicians didn't like the Barracks was that it spoiled the...More
