Boulder Town Hall

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Boulder Town Hall was built in 1908 and demonstrates the architectural style of the prosperous gold rush days. It is a beautifully preserved historic hall with pressed tin ceilings and wrought iron balustrades.

The Hall was formerly a theatre famous for celebrity performances by Dame Nellie Melba, Eileen Joyce and Joan Sutherland. It still houses a rare and famous Philip Goatcher Stage Curtain, believed to be the last remaining one of its kind. This spectacular curtain depicts the scene of the Bay of Naples and has hung in the hall since 1908. See the lovingly restored curtain be lowered by its original pulley system each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and on Boulder Market days.

On 7 January 2019, the museum was reopened in the Boulder Town Hall. Walk through the exhibition and discover the significant involvement residents of the town made during the Boer War, World Wars I and II, through to the 21st Century. Examine photographs, documents and original artefacts to gain an in-depth understanding of the wars and how it impacted on those enlisted and on the home-front.

Located on the corner of Burt and Lane Streets, Boulder is a seven hour drive east of Perth.
