The State Buildings are located in the historic heart of Perth, connecting three iconic heritage buildings that were formally known as the Lands, Titles and Treasury buildings. The buildings have been beautifully restored, resulting in a vibrant hub of life and activity.
The State Buildings sit on the corner of St Georges Terrace and Barrack Street in the centre of Perth. Over their 140-year history, they’ve been used as Public Offices, a Police Court and cell block, Treasury, Survey Department, GPO, Immigration Offices and office of the Premier and Cabinet – but have been empty and unused since the government vacated the buildings 20 years ago. They are now home to a selection of retail shopping, bars and restaurants and luxury accommodation, COMO The Treasury hotel.
The iconic Postal Hall at the heart of the State Buildings stands as a marker of passion, tenacity and curiosity, giving the people of Perth a reason to celebrate their history and importantly, Western Australia’s bright future.
The State Buildings were opened by Charles, Prince of Wales on 15 November 2015.
