the history pages are slow to compile as it is not our priority, we welcome contributions






The Windsor Hotel is a heritage-listed building in South Perth, Western Australia. Designed by J. J. Talbot Hobbs, the building is of Federation Filigree style. Built in 1898, it is one of the earliest surviving hotels in Perth's southern suburbs. The Windsor is sited to take advantage of patrons visiting Perth Zoo, coming via ferry along the Swan River. Since its construction, the hotel has had several major renovations.

The Windsor Hotel was designed by prominent architect J. J. Talbot Hobbs, and built for George Stickland in 1898 at a cost of ₤4,050. The hotel opened on the corner of Mends Street and Mill Point Road at a time when the popularity of South Perth was increasing; by the mid-1890s the suburb was well established.

In 1898, the Perth Zoo opened, along with a post office, which operated out of the hotel for a period of time.[2] Part way through World War II, the Stickland family sold the hotel to Mary Thomas (later Mary Raine),  who willed it to the University of Western Australia.[3] Major works have taken place since the Windsor was constructed in 1898, with renovations carried out in 1962, 1965, 1970, the 1980s and 1991.
