It's many years since I graduated from UWA, but it's always a joy to pass back through the campus when I return to Perth for visits. Beautiful location near the river and generally very attractive gardens and buildings. A highlight of a visit to Perth.

The University of Western Australia campus is a well developed, well maintained campus. Beautiful tree lined walkways and large expanses of grass lawns. The architecture was also quite nice. However, the art museum was the highlight of the visit. Perhaps I was just fortunate in...More
