Port Hedland Picture Gardens

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Port Hedland Picture Gardens opened in 1936. The Picture Gardens closed in 1986. The venue was said to still operate in the summer in the early-1990’s. There was a special screening on 18/10/1996 showing the John Wayne film “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” to celebrate the Centenary of Port Hedland, and on the same day a mural was unveiled on the side wall of the ANZ Bank about the history of the Picture Gardens and the Town of Port Hedland, a screen painted on the wall was used for the Centenary screening. The site is now the car park between the ANZ Bank and the Tourist Bureau.
