Oral History WA joins with the UWA Historical Society

Oral History WA joins with the UWA Historical Society
to invite you on a walking tour of the original UWA Crawley campus

Tuesday 18 January 2022, 9:30 am – 11:00 am 

Did you know that the University of Western Australia’s history began as an idea in 1910 and took three years to become a reality? It was in March 1913 that the inaugural academic year began with the admittance of its first cohort of students, both women and men, in Irwin Street, Perth.

Learn more by joining us when Ron Bodycoat, Conservation and Heritage Architect, takes us on a journey through time while sharing his abundant knowledge of the history of the UWA’s iconic buildings and gardens. The finish time & route will depend on the morning’s temperature.

After the walk relax and chat while having morning tea at the UWA’s Catalyst Café with other tour members.

RSVP January 16, 2022. Lynn O’Hara contact@oralhistorywa.org.au or 0408 959 006
