The picture-postcard Perth Old Mill is the city's oldest industrial colonial remnant, and a popular landmark.
The classic whitewashed windmill was built in 1835, launching the colony's wind-powered flour milling industry.
The mill fell into disuse after 1859, and was used for various purposes over the decades, from a dance hall to a chicken run.
Now restored, today the Old Mill is managed by the National Trust and houses interesting colonial artifacts.

Always love these tours on a first visit... lets you see whats around and helps you get your bearings, and if something looks interesting, you can hop off, and continue the tour later on another bus!

These tours are always great, but Perth was lovely - a beautiful day and lovely views. Highly recommend
The Old Mill is in South Perth, facing the city center on the south side of the Swan River.
You can catch a bus here from the city center, or ride the ferry from the Barrack Street Jetty to the Mends Street Jetty on the southern shore.
The Old Mill is a 15 minute stroll west from the jetty on Mill Point.
