“Remnant of something bigger”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

It stands alone on the top of St Georges Tce and above a freeway .. the rest of the building was knocked down to accomodate the freeway.

“A nice little feature of the Kings Park - City walk”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

There's not really a whole lot to the Barracks Arch, but it is an interesting point of Perth heritage, since the majority of the Barracks was demolished to build the nearby freeway canyon.

“Remnant”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Retained when the barracks were demolished for the freeway. Better there than not, but it looks a bit lonely.

Reviewed 16 February 2012

It was a hard fought battle to keep this reminder of the Pensioners' Barracks. We need all the history we can get.
