    The construction crew have uncovered some original jarrah blocks on Pier Street as part of the City of Perth’s East End Revitalisation project.

    The images shows City of Perth Cultural Engagement Officer Richenda Prall and Rebecca Ryan from Archae-aus with the newly uncovered blocks.

    Jarrah (and Karri) timber was commonly used to pave streets, both in Australian cities and in London.

  • East End Cobblestones

    The construction crew have uncovered some original cobblestones on Pier Street as part of the City of Perth’s East End Revitalisation project.

    More than 1000 stones from the 1920s or earlier are now in safe storage, with hopes to re-use them in the East End Revitalisation Project.

    Fiona Hook from Archae-Aus says while commonly referred to as ‘cobblestones’, these stones appear to have been cut or dressed in a quarry and are not naturally shaped cobblestones.

  • Uncovering History in the East End

    During recent works on Pier Street the construction crew uncovered original granite cobblestones dating back to the early 1920’s. It is thought the cobblestones which weigh 2 kilograms each, came from Stathams Quarry in Gooseberry Hill and were similar to the early asphalt roads that appeared in Perth in the 1880s.

    Pier Street was one of the earliest streets in Perth, running all the way down to Government House and Pier Street Jetty. It is no coincidence the cobblestones were used on this street, as they distinguished the more affluent side of the City, featuring Government House and the churches.

    The cobblestones have now been removed and are stored away awaiting their next home, likely in another area of the East End.

    New Public Space gets a Whadjuk Nyoongar name - Kaal Yimniny

    On 28 April 2020, City of Perth Commissioners endorsed the Whadjuk Nyoongar name Kaal yimniny meaning ‘fire here’ for a new public space in the City’s east end. Kaal yimniny refers to the area historically being used for fires, with the new space due to include overhead lighting, outdoor dining seating, raised planters and endemic planting.

    The creation of a new public space on the corner of Hay and Pier Streets offered a unique opportunity to give the space a Whadjuk Nyoongar name and continue to acknowledge, recognise and engage with the traditional owners of city lands - the Whadjuk Nyoongar people.

    The proposed name for the new public space has been selected by the City’s Elders Advisory Group, supported by South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council and confirmed by the Noongar Language Centre. The City is pleased to confirm that this new place name has now also been formally supported by Landgate and will appear on City wayfinding signage, maps and in ongoing promotional material.
