Commendation: Imperial Homestead York

The Imperial Homestead is a 133-year-old heritage listed building that stood empty and neglected for four years prior to being purchased by a group of local farmers with the goal of restoring the two-storey building to its former glory. 

Since re-opening, the Imperial Hotel has helped to revitalise the historic tourist town of York serving as a base from which guests can explore and connect with the history of the region and visit the many heritage attractions, activities and events that the Avon Valley and Wheatbelt regions have to offer.

Commendation: TIDES: Swan River Stories

The City of Perth presented TIDES: Swan River Stories, a fascinating exploration of the Derbarl Yerrigan Swan River and the sites around it from the Nyoongar Dreamtime through colonial settlement to the present day.

The Derbarl Yerrigan Swan River winds through Perth’s past, present and future as a different experience for all the people who live, work or play around it. This wide ranging and thought-provoking free exhibition was based on the City of Perth Cultural Collections.
