The Young Australia League (YAL) building was erected in 1924 as both a headquarters for the League and as a memorial for its members which had fallen in World War I. The YAL had been founded by Jack Simons in 1905 as a means of encouraging Australian nationalism and patriotic values among young people.
Designed by architectural firm Oldham, Boas & Ednie-Brown, the main feature of the YAL club was the 'memorial hall' which doubled as a ballroom. The basement was a large gymnasium designed "on most modern lines", while the top floor had a library, billiard room, and reading rooms.
The building was described as being in the Renaissance style and was carried out in 'imitation Donnybrook stone'. One of the special constructional features of the building was four reinforced concrete beams to carry the ballroom floor, which were the largest in Western Australia at the time.
The location is impeccable - at the eastern end of Murray Street and the corner of Irwin Street away from the main the hub of the Perth CBD, but surrounded by entertainment venues, hotels, restaurants, cafes, parking installations and public transport network.
