Living And Working In Perth

As one of the world’s most isolated cities, that certainly isn’t reflected in what Perth has to offer from day to day life. With fantastic restaurants, a booming business district, world class entertainment, stunning beaches and parks, top schools and universities it really isn’t any wonder why so many people are trying to migrate here. We’ve put together a quick overview of some of the different areas around Perth and what you can get up to in them.

Living in Fremantle

An easy commute to the City, Fremantle is just 30 minutes from the city centre, and is easily reached via rail or road. The bustling town is perfect if you want the beach lifestyle and enjoy little bohemian cafes. This friendly town even offers a fantastic market, great leisure facilities and plenty of gorgeous beach. If you’re looking to rent in Fremantle prices start from $400 AUD per week for pretty townhouses and sophisticated apartments.  For a cheaper option, you’ll find house and flat shares for around $150-$200 per week, which really helps whilst you’re finding your feet in a new area.

Eating in Cottesloe

Take in the exceptional views of the Indian Ocean whilst dining on sumptuous seafood. Cottesloe is a wonderful beachside town, also within easy reach of the city via rail or car. With plenty of great restaurants you’ll be spoilt for choice, and if you’re looking for a fun Sunday, then the bars in Cottesloe sure know how to show you a good time.

Working in Leederville

For the young professionals amongst you, Leederville is perfectly situated in a vibrant city location. With the area’s famous Oxford Street boasting tons of great places to eat and shop, it’s a great place to meet you new people and keep busy, and if you’ve taken a city job, then you won’t have far to commute!

Entertainment in Northbridge

Northbridge is where you’ll find watering holes aplenty. Head to William Street and you’ll find lots of bars that will keep the entertainment pumping until the early hours – perfect for those of you who enjoy an active social life!

Relaxing in Kings Park

Overlooking the Perth city skyline, Kings Park is a stunning Botanical Garden that will transport you into thick bushland just a stone’s throw from the city. Discover Western Australia’s wildflowers amongst the stunning flora. Kings Park also boasts a huge fountain that will cool you down on a hot day if the wind blows in the right direction, as well as the Saw Avenue Ampitheatre. Perfect for picnics and relaxation!

Swimming in Rockingham

Rockingham is a great little drive down from Fremantle and presents a real beachside town. With little cafes galore, Rockingham is the perfect location for water sports enthusiasts. Rockingham has some great spots for swimming, surfing, windsurfing, or exploring the bay via catamaran or kayak. Situated further out of town, if you don’t mind commuting or have a family, then this quieter town is the perfect location.
