Ground Floor Gallery

Images and events that will stay with you forever.

Through this series of front pages and photographs, delve into the archives of The Western Australian newspaper to uncover and experience the moments in history that help tell our story.

These are iconic photographs and stories of our time. They show us how we are connected to each other, to our community and the rest of the world. Beyond doubt, they have shaped the way Western Australians live, work, think and play.

This exhibition is a snapshot of some of those  moments - from a holocaust survivor's tattoo and a sailor's dramatic rescue, to the miracle at Thredbo, the moon landing and more recently evacuees from the Chinese city of Wuhan arriving at Christmas Island.

Visitors are advised that this display include images and news coverage of issues that may be distressing for some, including domestic violence, suicide and violent deaths.

Free exhibition. 

Exhibtion end date TBC.
