10 Cattley Street Architecture in Burnie, Australia

Fans of period architecture will enjoy a stroll down Cattley Street. At first glance, the buildings resemble small town storefronts. But there are two design types along these three blocks within the Heritage Area. The first is Federation Free, a form of architecture popular in Australia from 1890 until 1915. Its name is a reference to when the country became a commonwealth in 1901. This trend was followed from 1918 through WWII with simpler, often brick-faced buildings with Art Deco motifs. An example is the current St. Lukes Building on the right. This was the wood yard of the Don Trading Company when it opened in 1921.
