INNER EASTERN

East Perth, Burswood

Bordering opposite sides of the Swan River are the inner eastern suburbs of East Perth and Burswood.

East Perth has grown in popularity immensely over the last ten years, due to its inner city appeal, relaxed lifestyle, family friendly nature, proximity to the Swan River and growing number of cafes, restaurants and amenities in the area.

Directly across the river, Burswood has also become a popular destination in recent years with the development of various luxury apartment buildings and the reinvigoration of Crown Perth.

Redevelopment East Perth’s 40-hectare Riverside redevelopment project on the banks of the Swan River, will transform the eastern gateway into the city and create a vibrant new destination for the people of Perth and visitors to the city.

East Perth’s Powerstation project, with the Power Station building as its heart, is poised for new life. The vision is to transform the former industrial site into a vibrant waterfront destination and a community with a mix of living, working and leisure opportunities.

East Perth provides a very convenient way of life, as it borders the Perth CBD and is therefore considered an inner city area. The Swan River also acts as a definite draw card here, as residents get the best of both worlds – the city and the river at your doorstep.

Highlights include Terrace Road; with a superb choice of resort style apartment developments with sought after views of the Swan River, Langley Park and the city, and of course the beautiful Claisebrook Village precinct; with its array of eateries, bars and recreational spots.

Burswood provides a unique lifestyle option, with its enclave of luxury apartment buildings looking back at the Perth CBD and within close proximity to Crown Perth. The Perth Airport is also conveniently accessible from both suburbs.

The standout here would have to be Crown Perth. With a number of bars and nightclubs and a casino all under the one roof, it’s hard to look passed it.

If the casino isn’t you thing and you’re after a sophisticated drink with friends or clients, La Vie Champagne Lounge is the place to be. With an extensive list of champagnes to choose from, this is one of our favourite spots to relax and indulge.

The Merrywell offers something different and provides a pub atmosphere with a bit of polish. The food is great too!
