Claremont is one of Perth’s popular Western Suburbs, located on the northern bank of the Swan River. It is a self-sufficient suburb, with a high residential capacity and several shopping areas and entertainment spots. Claremont Quarter Shopping Centre has become a major shopping destination for those west of the city and elsewhere, and nearby restaurants and cafes are always buzzing. Claremont is known for its beautiful homes and leafy streets, with a focus on keeping the suburb tidy and community-minded.
The massive Claremont Showgrounds are a key feature of the suburb, with concerts and events like the Perth Royal Show held there every year. There are many secondary schools on offer in Claremont, with a particular focus on private institutions like Methodist Ladies’ College and Christ Church Grammar School. The Claremont Railway Station and Loch Street Railway Station are accessible and offer services to the CBD and beyond, and there is a special train station opened at the Claremont Showgrounds for specific events.
The Claremont Hotel and Club Bay View are staple pubs for locals, and the Claremont Oval is home to the local football club – for those who live and breathe footy. Claremont is around 20 minutes’ drive or train ride from the Perth CBD, and is close to Subiaco, Nedlands, Cottesloe and the affluent Peppermint Grove. The University of Western Australia is in nearby Crawley, and other universities and TAFEs are easily accessed by public transport or car. Claremont is in high demand, with older couples and families, elderly singles, and young singles making up the majority of the population.
