Best Places To Live Near Perth

Western Australia has a lot of temptations when considering making the move to Perth. Whether you’re after the better weather, or the relaxed lifestyle in Perth, there are many reasons to make this fantastic city your new home. Although there are an abundance of fantastic suburbs outside of Perth that are perfect for families with young children, there’s something to be said for living near the city centre. For example if you’ve moved to Perth for a corporate role in the city, then you won’t want to be spending too much time commuting. By living near the city centre, you can make sure you have maximum time to spend your free time as you wish.

For those of you who may be moving to Perth on a corporate visa then here are a few of the best places to live near Perth CBD.


North-west of the centre of Perth, Subiaco is a fantastic little suburb within easy walking distance to the beautiful Kings Park and Botanical Gardens. Situated near a main railway link it gives you easy access to hundreds of interesting attractions in and around Perth. For sporting and music fans the Domain Stadium is also located in Subiaco, keeping you close to the action. Here you’ll find fairly sized accommodation and be close to all the goings on.

Mount Lawley

Just north to the centre of Perth is the suburb of Mount Lawley. The picturesque and historic suburb is flanked by the Swan River leading to an abundance of beautiful scenery and great outdoor activities. Mount Lawley is also home to the Astor Cinema, an art decor building first constructed in 1914, although the building no longer shows movies, the Astor Cinema is a wonderful location to visit and now hosts live music, comedy and other community events, meaning you’ll certainly never get bored.

East Perth

East Perth is an inner suburb of Perth with great connections to the centre of town and transport links to get to all around, East Perth is a wonderful location with excellent views of the Swan River. With a fantastic selection of parks to spend your weekends relaxing in, East Perth makes a great place to relocate to if you are moving from a busy city overseas.


If you are looking for a peaceful and homely suburb to relocate to then Leederville is the option for you. With great facilities and public transport, there is plenty to see and do in Leederville, yet again you’re not too far away from the city.

What you do have to bare in mind when moving to Perth from overseas is that living near the city won’t be nearly as busy as living on the outskirts of London, Hong Kong or New York for that matter as the population is only around 2.2 million! So if you want to work in the corporate sector in Perth but also want the quiet lifestyle it makes for a fantastic city to emigrate to.
