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 Inner West Print E-mail


A great suburb close to the city centre. Because of its location, wide tree lined streets and architecture, Annandale is quintessentially Victorian era Sydney with a Gothic twist and a high price tag. More >>


Ashfield is family territory and the Chinatown of the inner West. It’s quite multicultural with a mixture of working and middle class residents. More >>


Bingo! Balmain is one of the best suburbs to live in Sydney. It has character, views, an interesting history, is cosmopolitan, but best of all, it has a great community spirit and plenty of good pubs. More >>


There is definitely a buzz in Burwood with everyday people getting on with things in a pleasant, clean, environment. More >>


Don’t let Victoria Rd put you off. Yeah, the traffic is VERY loud, but go just one street back and you enter a world of larger period homes, trees, water views, and chirping birds. More >>


How much do you pay for a Portuguese custard tart on the lower north shore or the eastern suburbs? $3? $3.50? Ripped off a beauty! In Dulwich Hill a piece of culinary heaven will set you back around $1.40. More >>


Is an "alternative" oasis in Australia's glitziest city. More >>


Five Dock is fab. It's like being in an Italian village. This is an unpretentious corner of Sydney that is filled with Italian delis, cafes and butchers. More >>


If you want to taste cuisine of the world but can’t afford the airfare, then bus it to Glebe Point Rd. Here you will find food from all over the world. More >>


Welcome to Italy. Walk down Ramsay St on a Saturday morning and you'll feel like you've gone through a time warp and entered 1950's Italy. More >>


Cappuccino, pizza, gelati and some good looking waiters. Si Si. Liechhardt is Sydney’s Italian fix and Haberfield on steroids. More >>


Marrickville is a multicultural melting pot that's becoming groovy. It used to have a large Greek community, but now the Asian influence is much stronger. More >>


Put on your sneakers and get lost in Newtown. Newtown is the grunge capital of Sydney, where shopping and eating out is big, and where the mainstream is almost nowhere to be seen. More >>


Once an industrial zone bereft of almost any residential life, Pyrmont has become a high-rise apartment mecca popular with young professionals on the way up. More >>


This is the upmarket organic hub of Sydney. It’s got some great cafes, restaurants and shops, a weekly second hand market, a good community feel and lots of Victorian era workers’ cottages. More >>


Once upon a time there were small, very basic, functional shops that catered for the working and lower middle classes. Then new people began moving in - professionals, singles, gays, refugees from the over priced eastern suburbs. And suddenly Summer Hill became groovy in an understated kind of way. More >>
