Our History

Our History

Past and Present

Friendlies Chemist Subiaco has a well established history as a reputable provider of quality healthcare and specialist advice throughout Perth, Western Australia.

As our business has evolved over 80 years, our Subiaco premises have changed too. Initially located at 122 Rokeby Road, Subiaco, we moved into the historic Kings Hall building (circa 1902) in 2000.

Like our services, products, people, brand and dispensary, our premises offer a unique environment rich in history in which to seek traditional and natural medicine advice, along with great shopping.

Kings Hall

Kings Hall was built in 1902 and weekly dances, receptions, church concerts and travelling exhibitions of ‘magic lanterns’ programs were once hosted at the venue.

The building also held interesting celebrations including the ‘Welcome Home’ dinner for returned soldiers in 1918, and the Pioneers Commemoration Oration of WA’s centenary year in 1929.  


In its previous life, Kings Hall was the home of Timewells a well-known Subiaco fashion and haberdashery business that operated from 1952 to 2000.

The Timewell family received a Subiaco Award Commendation when they renovated Kings Hall in 1990 for their significant contribution to the built environment in the City of Subiaco. The restoration works included the refurbishment of the original and beautiful vaulted pressed tin ceiling.
