INNER SOUTHERN

South Perth, Como

There’s a lot to love about the inner southern suburbs of South Perth and Como.

Undeniably, the South Perth foreshore provides our most iconic viewing vantage point of the Perth City skyline. This stunning promenade is lined with exclusive real estate, manicured gardens and provides the most sensational views for locals, visitors and tourists alike.

South Perth provides wonderful lifestyle amenities leaving no stone unturned. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, speciality stores and even the Perth Zoo all come together to support this stunning riverside suburb.

Just a little further down the way you’ll find Como. A charming suburb with plenty of lifestyle benefits and a strong sense of community.

 

 

There’s something quite relaxing about the inner southern suburbs. With the Swan River bordering much of the precinct there’s a natural sense of calm and tranquility that we just love.

People regularly flock to the South Perth foreshore and other beautiful stretches along the river to enjoy picnics, walks, jogs and other fitness activities. This really is a standout lifestyle feature for families and people that love the outdoors.

The Mends Street Jetty also provides a fantastic jetty service to the Perth foreshore at Barrack Street Jetty. A unique way to travel to and from work!

Did someone say food? Glass of wine perhaps? There are gorgeous pockets of dining and drinking options with some of Perth’s most iconic institutions right here.

Mends Street, Angelo Street and Preston Street are standout precincts.

WHAT WE LOVE 

Walks and picnics along the foreshore, Friday lunch at Coco’s, week night dinner at Ciao Italia and movies any time at the Cygnet Theatre. 

You’ve come to the right place! The inner southern suburbs are home to some of Perth’s most iconic dining and drinking institutions. There’s a range of cuisines and options to suit any budget or palette and there’s plenty of family friendly options too!

After many years, Coco’s, overlooking the South Perth foreshore is still going strong and provides a place to entertain friends and clients. The “Friday Lunch” as always been right at home here, having served many of Perth’s most successful business men and women and personalities.

‘The Local’ lives very well in the inner southern suburbs with iconic local pubs such as The Windsor, The Como and The Karalee on Preston serving locals and visitors alike.

The Windsor is one of the great surviving hotels in Perth, dating back to the late 1800’s and now provides a remodelled retro and contemporary decor and a gorgeous verandah bar.

The Como and The Karalee on Preston need little introduction. These venues have been serving locals for years.

The Como is a great place to enjoy a drink in the beer garden or watch live music. Alternatively, watch the sunset and soak up the local Preston Street atmosphere at The Karalee.

Unique to this gorgeous precinct is the presence of the Perth Zoo. The Perth Zoo is proudly dedicated to conservation and houses a range of animal varieties from Africa, Asia, Australia and America. This is a great day out for the family and friends.
