West Leederville is a suburb 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) northwest of the central business district of Perth, the capital of Western Australia, and is within the Town of Cambridge. It used to be integrated with Leederville (now within the Town of Vincent) prior to the construction of Mitchell Freeway through the suburb in 1972.
The tiny section east of Southport Street is a commercial area with several warehouses, taking advantage of its location at the end of the Graham Farmer Freeway. The rest of the suburb is medium-density residential. The suburb backs onto Subiaco Oval, the home of football in Western Australia, and St John of God Hospital Subiaco. Many of the original residences still stand with most being renovated next to newer double storey dwellings, leafy streets with some properties gaining views of the city. Prestigious “Hill of Tara” subdivision is a newer subdvision with larger homes on bigger blocks with many affording view of Lake Monger.
It is served by bus services along Cambridge and Ruislip Streets and the Leederville train station (Joondalup/Clarkson line) and West Leederville train station (Fremantle line).
