Old Central Fire Station Heritage Weekend

Join us on the balcony of Perth's old Central Fire Station as we take a fun look at the firefighter antics that took place here! Then explore the heritage listed fire station, dress-up as a firefighter and take a ride around the block in a vintage fire truck! There is something for everyone.

This year for our annual Heritage Weekend we are swinging open the balcony doors of the old Central Fire Station for a rare glimpse of where firefighters relaxed and often slept over 100 years ago. From the balcony admire the wondrous fig tree and imagine the tales of courtship between firefighters and nurses hidden between the leaves. Luckily, we have our own volunteers on hand who will share a story or two, but they may be more legend than truth!

Children will get a unique balcony experience with the appearance of Igor the spider who would startle many an innocent passer-by on the footpath below. Plus, they can meet Freddy the Fire Truck and take a ride around the block on an original 1960s Bedford fire appliance!

Were you a victim of Igor? Did you steal a kiss from a firefighter under the old fig tree? We invite you to share your stories with us!
