Round House Conservation Management Plan

We’re preparing a conservation management plan for the Round House, to help guide the future conservation and care of this important place.


Prior to preparing a CMP we asked for your stories, connection and curiosity about the Round House to guide the direction of this work. Your input was an important part of ensuring the heritage values of the Round House are appropriately recognised, assessed and conserved. The Round House building is located on Manjaree (Arthur Head) and the City also consulted specifically with Traditional Owners.

What is in the conservation management plan?

The CMP is a large document and also includes appendices and technical reports. To assist you to navigate a few points of interest are included below:

  • Inclusion of history of the site pre-1829 (see pg 21).
  • A proposed revised Statement of Significance (see pg 159) as the existing Statement does not address the broader cultural heritage values of the place to the Western Australian community.
  • Proposed conservation recommendations (see pg 16).
  • Proposed conservation and maintenance schedule (see pg 184).


How can I contribute my thoughts?

Earlier in the year we called on you to help build on the rich stories and existing research already shared about the Round House. We've now prepared a draft conservation management plan and invite your feedback:

  • You can access the CMP online here or in the document library (large file) and share your feedback below; or
  • You can browse a hard copy at the Round House (10.30am to 3.30pm) and complete a submission; or
  • You can browse a copy at the Fremantle History Centre (Library, Fremantle Oval) and complete a submission.


Submit your feedback below or via a hard copy form (available at the Round House or Fremantle Library) by Sunday 8 November 2020.
