Perth Airport, Western Australia
Perth Airport is both a domestic and international air transport facility and a suburb of Perth, the Western Australia capital. The air facility and the suburb are inseparable, as both are operated by Perth Airport Pty Ltd, a private company. The company and the Commonwealth Government have agreed to a 99-year lease. The international terminals and domestic terminals are separated by about 5 kilometres. Both sets of terminals are served by the same runways, and aircraft arrivals and departures use the same runway system. The Perth Airport has something of a poor reputation within the flying community.
Historically, the airport stands on land granted to John Scott, by Governor James Stirling, in 1838. Scott established a home near Guildford and used the Swan River for transport to his bloodstock farm. Long after the farm’s demise, the long-disused Dunreath Golf Course was built on the land.
In the early 20th century, aircraft used a landing field in Maylands. As airplanes grew in size and speed, it was clear the Maylands was inadequate for the task. The Department of Civil Aviation appointed N.M. Fricker to select and purchase a new site for the airport. Construction began in 1938.
The Art Gallery of Western Australia is just part of Perth’s Cultural Centre. In addition to magnificent displays of Aboriginal art, Torres Strait Islander art is exhibited at the Gallery. Ceramics, textiles, sculptures, and other media join the paintings. Sections and rooms in the Gallery date back to the Centenary Galleries’ days in 1905. Programs are given on a regular basis, for children and adults. Parts of the gallery can be hired for private functions.
A pleasant drive from Perth Airport will take you to Wungong where you can visit the Armadale Reptile Centre. Skinks, dragons, monitors, and snakes are featured, but there are Australian birds and marsupials, as well. This is a learning venue, as you can learn about the snakes in captivity before you see them in your backyard. The Centre is open six days a week, closed on Wednesday, except during school holidays.
