Cape Peron restoration completed to preserve WA’s history

Cape Peron, one of Western Australia’s coastal defence sites during the Second World War, has been upgraded to reflect its historical significance.

The area surrounding the heritage-listed observation post has been resurfaced with limestone concrete, while new steps have been installed and the existing balustrade has been replaced with galvanised steel.

The John Point lookout at Cape Peron has also been upgraded to include a limestone retaining wall, limestone concrete surface and an aluminium marine-grade balustrade.

The gun emplacement has been enhanced with a limestone retaining wall and bench seating.

The WA Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) will continue to work with the Point Peron Rehabilitation Committee to develop interpretive signage that will be installed later in 2019.
