University of Western Australia

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Meander around the interesting Mediterranean-style historic buildings and beautifully landscaped gardens at The University of Western Australia (UWA). The 65 hectare Crawley campus is adjacent to the Swan River and is renowned as one of Australia’s most beautiful campuses.

Many of the buildings are constructed from limestone, including the enormous and iconic Winthrop Hall with its Romanesque architecture. The New Fortune Theatre is a replica of the original Elizabethan Fortune Theatre and is used to host many special events and performances.

Also worth visiting are the Somerville Auditorium, Octagon Theatre, New Dolphin Theatre, Sunken Garden and the Tropical Grove, the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Edward de Courcy Clarke Earth Science Museum and the Berndt Museum of Anthropolgoy.

Enjoy lunch on the lawns, under an old shady tree, or in one of the many quality cafes on campus.

Located just 10 minutes drive from the city, it is best reached by public transport or bicycle due to a shortage of parking near the campus.
