Dingo flour mill


Perth has an intriguing history when it comes to architecture. There have sadly been so many incredible buildings lost to the wrecking ball.

My favourite structure is the Dingo Flour mill, in North Fremantle. Painted by graphic designer Alan Bond (yes, THE Alan Bond), it's bold, it's massive, and it's a landmark.

What is your favourite Perth icon (still standing)?

What old Barracks at the top of St George's Terrace still stands there on its own. There are many iconic buildings still left in Perth and many heritage listed ones.
The old barracks is however unusual in that there is building/freeway all round it and it still stands.

Alan Bond did not paint the Dingo on the flour mill. Was done by Purnel signs and Alan never worked for them, someone is feeding you B.S.
Spending a month in Perth at the moment. I like the entry to the old barracks. That has always been Perth for me since my first visit as a teen in 1965. I'm glad to see the Old Mill is still standing. It along with the Elizabeth Arcade always bring back happy memories of many visits to the West Coast, particularly while my sister was still alive. Great catching up with her brood.
In my opinion....the Surf Lifesaving pavilion at Cottesloe Beach. It makes an appearance on many Perth postcards and other souvenirs.
