The Rokeby Fire Station is an excellent example of Post-Modern architecture, which is evident in its scale and extroversion, its embrace of urban vernacular and its sense of fun with it’s ‘toy-town’ like appearance. It is one of the earliest examples of this style of architecture in Australia. Please note that the station is operational and may be closed if an incident occurs.
