Bill Sewell Complex

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Wandering the streets of Geraldton it will be hard to miss the aesthetically pleasing grand building that is known as the Bill Sewell Complex. A visit to the Old Victoria Hospital display maintained by the ex-nurses will provide you with an interesting history of this magnificent historic building. Originally the site of a convict depot and later the Victoria District Hospital, the building played a significant role in the state’s heritage.

Saunter around the building to examine the intricate architecture and visualise life for the convicts and residents of Geraldton of the late 1800s. Follow the 650 metre heritage trail around the buildings and grounds to learn more of the history of the building or join the local volunteers in a free guided tour of the complex on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Meet on the veranda of the Victoria Building. The tour includes a visit to the Old Gaol.

Geraldton is a charming beachside city located a short 4.5 hour drive north of Perth.
