Surburb overview

Unsaturated and laid back, South Perth provides visitors and residents plenty of room to mill about and take in its leafy spaces, charming streetside cafes and shops, and riverside view. That’s the irony of it: South Perth lies on the opposite side of the central business district, and is home to high-density, multi-family properties.


South Perth enjoyed a rise in tourist receipts as the whole of Western Australia grew in popularity among Asian travellers. Perth in itself is blessed with a beautiful, far-reaching shoreline, making South Perth a convenient jump off-point to explore the best beaches in the capital. The suburb, meanwhile, is home to a relaxing foreshore that encompasses several kilometres of open green space, a dockyard, cycling and walking tracks, and reserve.

With a thriving art and culture scene that continue to gain full support from the government, as well as the local council’s initiatives to develop its lifestyle hubs, it’s no wonder that tourists are training their gaze on the burgeoning hotspot. South Perth is also an epicurean’s dream, boasting the best places to eat anything from home-cooked ethnic fare to fine dining.
