University of Western Australia

With its distinctive Mediterranean-style architecture and landscaped gardens, the University of Western Australia is renowned as one of Australia’s most beautiful campuses. Here you’ll find Winthrop Hall, with its majestic clock tower and reflection pond, and the Sunken Garden, backdrop for many a wedding photo. The Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, home to the university’s extensive collection of Australian art, includes works by Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Fred Williams and Rupert Bunny. 35 Stirling Hwy, Crawley; (08) 6488 3707; open 11am–5pm Tues–Sat; admission free.

Also within the university grounds is the Berndt Museum of Anthropology, which houses one of Australia’s finest collections of traditional and contemporary Australian Aboriginal art and artefacts. It has temporarily relocated to the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery building in the Dr Harold Schenberg Arts Centre.
