The Historical Panoramas virtual tour provides visitors with the ability to explore 20 panoramic locations around Perth and Fremantle dating as far back as 1860. The interface allows users to zoom in on fine details, zoom out to see the big picture, and pan around to explore. Users are able to jump between panorama locations and fade between different years. The centrepiece of the tour, and the starting point, is a near 360° view from the Perth Town Hall in 1885, 1906, 1925 and 2016.
When you reach the start page of the tour, please take a few moments to read the instructions, and then please explore!
