The exhibition features photos, paintings, maps, videos and stories from the State Library, State Records Office and loans from community.
The exhibition themes are: Waugal shaping the landscape; Early European maps shaping the city, and more recent re-inscription of Noongar names and information back into the map; Shaping the river’s edge; Rebuilding the city: gold rushes and modernism; and Shaping Kings Park. The exhibition will also reflect on the role of the Library in remembering, and the ways library collections have changed over time.
Exciting images and artefacts to be included in the exhibition include a six-metre reproduction of the 1892 cycloramic (panorama) of Perth drawn by architect John Stewart Jackson, an 1887 plan for reclaiming the foreshore for a cricket ground and public gardens, a quilt “Balbuk’s Country – Unforseen Future”, and a photograph of the 1983 America’s Cup celebrations on the Esplanade.

A play by Richard Tulloch
Adapted from the book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton
Andy and Terry’s Treehouse has reached an amazing 91 Stories! It’s now more fantastically dangerous than ever, with a deserted desert island, a whirlpool, and a giant spider!
But Andy, Terry and Jill have no idea they’re about to face their biggest challenge yet! Mr Big Nose has sent his grandchildren to the Treehouse, and they don’t want to just sit quietly.
Can Andy, Terry & Jill master this extreme babysitting challenge? What does mysterious fortune teller Madam Know-It-All really want? And will the Big Red Button really destroy the world?
The team behind The 13, 26, 52 & 78 Storey Treehouses return with a fantastical trip through this wild, weird and wonderful world for children 6-12 and their adults. Just beware of the Fortune Teller…
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
