Barracks Arch - Perth Western Australia by 


The Barracks Arch at the end of St Georges Terrace in Perth’s CBD.

The Barracks Arch is the only remaining part of the original barracks that was built in 1863, and contained 2 wings of 120 rooms. The Barracks was demolished in the 1960’s despite allot of public protest to make way for the Mitchell Freeway and some say to give the politicians a clear view of the city from Parliament house which is located behind the Arch on the other side of the freeway, you can see the building behind the Arch in the photo.

I’ve been meaning to shoot at this location, and I just happened to have been driving through the CBD late at night, so there was plenty of parking, and no traffic, and nobody to get into my shots which was great!

Canon EOS 7D And 15-85 IS.

    Wonderful capture, the SC works really well here. Oh and the “clear view for the polies” theory is right, the same thing happened with the QV1 building, they had to “shave” the sides of the building so they got their views, great work EOS
