Located in the centre of the Thomson Bay Settlement, the Salt Store is one of the oldest buildings on Rottnest Island.
Constructed by Aboriginal prisoners in 1868, the Salt Store was originally used to hold the bagged salt collected from two of Rottnest Island's salt lakes, ready for transportation to Fremantle.
In 1997 the limestone building was restored but still retains many of its original features. Today, this relaxed and unconventional venue is primarily used as a gallery space and hosts a variety of interpretive displays and unique art and photography exhibitions.
The Salt Store is available to hire for individuals and groups. If you are interested in hiring the Salt Store for your next exhibition, please contact the Product Development Officer.
