Mount Hawthorn

    Mount Hawthorn, Perth (north)

Rent: Rents range from affordable to expensive

Vibe: Life is good

Location: Parks, 5-10km from city centre

Perth gives Mount Hawthorn the thumbs up. Why? This suburb is just 6km north of the city centre and is one self contained living hotspot. It has great schools, leafy streets, plenty of parks, friendly neighbours, and a good cafe culture. Mount Hawthorn has a few pubs, the popular and upmarket Mezz shopping centre, and there's a small live music scene here - including the cool Jazz Cellar which you enter through an old red phone booth. On weekends, expect to see families doing their thing, and joggers hitting the pavement. As with most Perth suburbs having a car comes in handy, but you don't really need one in Mount Hawthorn because public transport is good. It's only a 10 minute train ride away from the city centre.

I can't remember when travel wasn't one of the big goals of my life.

And when I wasn't jetting out of Australia, I was moving around it.

I've spent big chunks of my life as a resident of Melbourne, Adelaide and
Sydney, but as something of a foodie, and a girl who loves a groovy
outfit and a good cold beer, I've always been frustrated by the lack of
a single, authoritative, information source to tell me what‘s where; and what the flavour of different places was.

And so, after many years of determined investigation and exploration, here's what I've discovered about Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and their surrounds.

I hope it helps you to quickly feel as much at home in any of them, as I do.

It's great to have your company.
