INNER WESTERN

West Perth, Subiaco, Shenton Park, Leederville, Wembley, Mount Hawthorn

The vibrant strips of the inner western suburbs provide residents and visitors with an abundance of boutiques, eateries, night spots and day to day amenities.

Hay Street, Rockeby Road, Nicholson Road, Onslow Road, Oxford Street and Scarborough Beach Road are all stand out destinations and provide endless lifestyle options.

West Perth and Subiaco also have a strong commercial presence and act as commercial satellites to the Perth CBD.

These “village-like” suburbs maintain a strong sense of community spirit.

Whether you’re after the hustle and bustle of West Perth by day, the energy of Subiaco by night, the charming pockets of Shenton Park or the eclectic nature of Leederville, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Mount Hawthorn over recent years has also come to life and has earned its place as a lifestyle hub of its own.

The community spirit is strong is these suburbs and are popular for families and professionals alike. And for sporting fans or those who just like to be amongst the action, nothing beats being in Subiaco on game day.

Luxury apartments in West Perth, federation homes in Subiaco, or architecturally designed houses in Shenton Park – the choice is yours.

WHAT WE LOVE

Perusing the boutiques along Hay Street and Nicholson Road, grabbing an after work drink in West Perth, hitting Jacobs Ladder at Kings Park or spending an afternoon with a good book at Lake Monger, grabbing all day brunch at Duende, stocking up on fruit and vegetables at the Subiaco Markets on Saturday mornings. 

Variety is plentiful in the inner western suburbs and will satisfy whatever culinary experience you are after.

There are plenty of “cheap-and-cheerful”, middle tier and fine dining options to be found.

Oxford Street in Leederville is constantly buzzing with coffee-lovers any day of the week and lunch (and cake) at Boucla in Subiaco is a must (if you can get a seat!).

WHAT WE LOVE

Boucla, The Subiaco Hotel, Duende, Bonsai, Divido, Neighbourhood Pizza, Frasers Restaurant, Kiri. 

The neighborhood bar really comes alive in these suburbs!

Small bars such as Juanita’s and The Nic are favorites with locals and provide a relaxed and intimate environment to catch up with friends and neighbours.

West Perth is popular with the after work crowd and offers a few more sophisticated options for unwinding or getting the night started (Amphoras, The Brown Fox).

Leederville is notorious for coming alive after hours at such places like The Leederville Hotel, The Manor and the Hippie Club. Or, enjoy a Pimms on a warm Summer’s day at The Garden.

WHAT WE LOVE 

The Subiaco Hotel, Juanitas, The Nic, The Garden.

There is never a dull moment in the inner western suburbs!

Leederville really comes alive in December for the “Leederville Carnival” as retailers, residents, artists and entertainers celebrate all things, Leederville.

Perth’s premier arthouse cinema, Luna Cinemas, is the perfect place to check out the latest indie films or head to the heritage-listed art-deco style Regal Theatre in Subiaco for a live show.

In Subiaco, pop into any of the art galleries such as Seva Frangos Art, Lister Gallery and Linton and Kay and peruse their latest exhibitions.

If you have little ones in tow, check out the Barking Gecko Theatre Company.
