Broken Hill Hotel.. shades of beige.



It may have been a dreary day when I took these shots of the Broken Hill Hotel, but there is nothing dull about this State Heritage listed landmark in Victoria Park. The oldest remaining hotel in VP it was built, like so many of Perth's heritage listed buildings, during the gold rush in the late 1800's. Built in the 'Federation Free Classical style, with corner faceted dome tower' it was thought to be rather grand in its time. Rescued from decay and restored beautifully in 2005 it is now considered one of Perth's best restaurant/pub venues. What do you think, shades of beige never looked so good :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

  9. It is a very handsome building but I am not sure about the two colours. Pity the tower wasn't left open, but they can become very attractive to pest birds.

  19. The shades of grey look super in these photos, a nice contrast to the terra cotta at the hotels "feet."

  23. It is indeed a Grand Hotel!! Incidentally, I am now in the 5th day of a miserable bout of Verdigo so my posting, visiting, and commenting are proving difficult, but I will eventually be back in full swing again. Have a good week-end!

  26. What a wonderful old building. I'm so pleased it's been maintained so well.

    I've only been to Perth once...for a week...back in early February 1987 when the America's Cup was on. I was there for business...marketing purposes...at the time I was managing the resort on Hinchinbrook Island in north Queensland. I didn't do a lot of business, but I sure did have a fun time!

    I stayed in the Hilton Parmelia; and I was fortunate enough to be a guest of the Royal Perth Yacht Club one day, organised by Ansett Airlines. I was invited to go out on a huge powered catamaran to view the competing yachts up close, but where the race was being held was too far out to sea for my liking and comfort upon the rolling waves, no matter how big the host boat was! Instead I took up the alternate offer to sit comfortably in the Yacht Club as a guest of Ansett; to sip at my leisure and pleasure on a couple of drinks while watching the events on a large TV screen! lol
