Leederville

    Leederville, Perth (inner north)

Location: Inner city

Vibe: earthy and creative

Rent: moderate

Leederville is one of the best suburbs in Perth. It’s cool, it’s fun, and it’s vibrant. Spend 10 minutes in Leederville’s busy Oxford Street and you will see all the stereotypes pass you by from yuppies to hippies; it really is a mixed bag! This suburb is just the thing for young professionals, students and families who like inner city living. The architecture in Leederville is typically workers cottages, town houses, and apartment blocks. Access to public transport is great.

Oxford Street is the heart and soul of Leederville with a café for every taste.  Espresso? Soy chai latte? Herbal tea? There’s also the famous fish outlet Kailis Bros, as well as the best burger joints in town, Jus Burgers and the Burger Bistro. The Luna Palace Cinema is an old favourite offering Monday movie doubles, and outdoor cinema in the summer.  Parking in Leederville is good, but can be hard to find a space around Oxford St during the lunchtime rush. Leederville is also popular in the evenings with clubs and pubs on the south end of Oxford St.

The YMCA HQ skate park buzzes with active youth, whether they are skate boarding or using the music and art spaces. Beatty Park Leisure Centre is on Vincent St. Built in 1962 to house the Commonwealth and British Empire Games it has served active sandgropers (slang for people from Perth) for fifty years.

Neighbouring West Leederville was once a part of Leederville, but with the completion of the Mitchell Fwy the suburb was split into two.  Although not as vibrant as its neighbour, West Leederville is home to Pattersons Stadium, where both Aussie Rules football teams – the Eagles and Dockers - call home. Also, St John of God hospital, and the tranquil Lake Monger are important parts of West Leederville. Both suburbs have good public transport access; Leederville is on the Joondalup train line, while West Leederville is on the Fremantle Line. And, there are good bus services.

KELVIN GROVE

Kelvin Grove is one of those places that you have to live in to appreciate. It has attractive streets, but lacks an overriding identity or  soul, which might explain why the Kelvin Grove Urban Village has been built. More >>>


MILTON

Once upon a time Milton attracted creative, alternative types. These days they are an endangered species. In recent years, this partially industrial, partially residential suburb has seen more apartments spring up, bringing with them childless professionals. More >>>


NEW FARM

New Farm was a drug and prostition hot spot until the 1990's. Then, gentrification kicked in and now New Farm has become a cafe hot spot, popular with professionals, gays, empty nesters and singles. It's not cheap to live here but it is very appealing. More>>>



PADDINGTON

Bingo! Paddington is one of Brisbane's best suburbs. It's a more upmarket version of West End, and is the Balmain of Sydney.  More>>>

ROSALIE

If you wanted a suburb in Brisbane with a great village feel, nice housing, beaut streets, and good shopping nearby, then three cheers for Rosalie. More >>>

Teneriffe is a funky one-of-a-kind suburb in Brisbane. It's filled with warehouse conversions and exercise loving professionals. More>>>

WEST END   

 

Once upon a time West End was a bit of a rough area, few people found appealing. Now it is cafe central with a fantastic weekend market. West End is the grungey, arty, alternative centre of Brisbane, popular with the socially aware cool cats. More>>
