South Perth is a highly sought after, affluent suburb situated right on the bank of the Swan River. Perfect for families and couples, South Perth covers five square kilometres and offers incredible views from the edge of the river and from double and multiple storey houses throughout the suburb. It is only three kilometres from the Perth CBD, but feels like a different world with leafy streets, lots of cafes and restaurants along Angelo Street and access to everything that Perth has to offer.
There are significant parklands throughout South Perth, and a long foreshore that is ideal for sporting activities, taking the kids to the park or for a canoe, and it’s the perfect spot for New Year’s fireworks! South Perth offers a mixture of apartments, units, and houses, with something to suit any lifestyle. Perth Zoo sits within the suburb, and Sir James Mitchell Park is a big drawcard for many families and couples. For those commuting to the city, it’s an easy drive or train ride – or, a ferry ride!
Several primary schools service South Perth, as well as the private Wesley College. For those wishing to study, Murdoch and Curtin Universities are accessible by train and car in the southern suburbs, and it’s an easy commute to the University of WA, close to the city. There are many restaurants, boutiques and cafes along the waterfront and within the area, with food and dining options to cater to all tastes.
