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.

Sydney East Print E-mail


Welcome to Australia’s best known suburb and beach. On any sunny day Bondi Beach is loaded with bronzed bodies, beautiful people, backpackers tanning, and locals and tourists in cafes sipping a latte or macchiato. More >>


If convenience had another name, it would be Bondi Junction. This place is the retail, commercial, medical and transport hub of the eastern suburbs and everything is within walking distance. Which explains why people like living here. More >>


Bronte is a hillly, quieter, and more relaxed alternative to Bondi with equally stunning views. It tends to have a village and a community feel, but make no mistakes, there is a café scene here too, especially around the beach. More >>


Looking for the atmosphere of a small coastal town? In the 1950s? Clovelly is the place. Tucked between the bigger, better-known suburbs of Bronte and Coogee, Clovelly has a quiet, laidback atmosphere. More >>


Think Bondi’s little brother. Coogee the beach and Coogee the suburb are both smaller than their famous northern neighbour, and the attitude is also scaled-back. There are lots of UNSW students spilling over from Randwick. More >>


Darlinghurst is one of the more colourful suburbs in Sydney. The girls (prostitutes) still walk the streets, but these days they share the footpath with young film makers, professionals, and the alternative, arty, yoga set. More >>


Darling. Sweetie. Names!!! Don’t venture down here on a bad hair day. And, if you’re tempted to visit in a track suit, make sure it’s LaCroix, sweetie. This place is all about money, image, designer labels and big bank accounts. More >>


Not a suburb with all that much vibe. But there are three things going for Edgecliff – it has good public transport, it’s close to the harbour, and it is close to several other more interesting suburbs.  More >>


Elizabeth Bay is a magnet for the creative types with decent pay packets who like the cosmopolitan nature of the suburb, and its proximity to the city centre. More >>


One of the most interesting and vibrant suburbs in Sydney. it has become the preferred home to those with money, and a penchant for style and inner city living. More >>


The closest thing Australia has to New York’s Soho. It’s a happening place that attracts the open minded. If you want to live here, you have to have a bit more money than your average Joe Bloggs. Laid back style is the mantra. More >>


Randwick is a sprawling suburb which encompasses landmarks like Randwick Racecourse, Centennial Park, the University of New South Wales and a number of hospitals. There’s plenty of accommodation in the area, both short and long term. More >>


Redfern has its fans and its detractors. In recent years, professionals unable to afford properties in neighbouring Surry Hills have been moving in, changing the traditional working class, rough image. More >>


Rose Bay is another exclusive suburb in Sydney’s fashionable east. Large period or architect designed homes on large properties in tree lined streets, make Rose Bay one of the prettiest and most sought after suburbs. More >>


This is the place bright young things like to hang out. And why wouldn't they?This is the theatrical hub of Sydney with plenty of great bars and cafes. More >>


Leafy, hilly, expensive houses, expensive private schools, big parks, great views. Vaucluse is very much establishment. It’s about the closest thing you’ll get to a gated community without actually being one. More >>


OK. You want antiques, art, designer clothes and gourmet food? Then Woollahra will be your nirvana. It’s a sought after suburb especially popular with the finance and law sets, and anyone with a bit of extra moola More >>


Now here is a tale of two cities. There’s the waterfront Woolloomooloo with good cafes, some pricey restaurants, and expensive newish apartments. And then there’s the older Woolloomooloo with plenty of small terraces, public housing and a history of punch ups. More >>
