PERTH | UNIQUE VENUES
stablished in 1899 as a branch of
Britain’s Royal Mint, The Perth Mint
was built in response to the discovery
of rich gold deposits in the State, and has since
become one of Perth’s finest tourist destinations.
The building is Australia’s only remaining
‘gold rush’ mint and a reminder of Western
Australia’s rich beginnings.
The Perth Mint offers a range of function
spaces, each with its own unique ambience to
create a special experience.
The Foyer and Shop is housed in the grand
heritage building, and offers colonial features
and contemporary furnishings. The area
comprises five open rooms that flow through the
ground level of the building, showcasing WA’s
natural treasures and a selection of giftware,
which is available for purchase during functions.
Thousands of dollars worth of gold still lies
embedded in the brick walls of the Melting House,
the Mint’s original refinery. See a traditional
gold pouring performance or host a theatre-style
presentation in this historic space.
Paved with limestone and featuring
a replica late-19th century miners’ campsite, the
Courtyard Garden and Veranda is surrounded by
turn-of-the-century buildings and is ideal for
a cocktail function or an intimate small dinner.
The Forecourt and Front Garden outdoor
space provides an uninterrupted view of The
Perth Mint’s majestic heritage building, with
the lush lawns able to accommodate a range of
marquee options to suit any occasion.

Perth Mint adds a historical atmosphere to
