The NeighborhoodLOCATION - WEST PERTH
West Perth is a fantastic base and whether you plan to hire a car or use public transport we believe that you will be able to explore the city and neighbourhoods quite easily.
West Perth is known more as a business district, however our apartment is located on the border of the CBD, steps away from St Georges Terrace. In fact, the apartment sits in a wonderful little pocket between the iconic Kings Park Botanical Gardens and the Perth CBD, really the best of both worlds – the city and natural green surroundings. You can wake up and hear the birds on most days.
Kings Park and Botanical Gardens offers stunning views and is the perfect spot to watch the sun rise. As a visitor to the city, there is a lot to do and see at Kings Park from picnicking at one of the many viewing vantage points, firing up a BBQ to wining and dining at Frasers Restaurant. There are many walking trails throughout the gardens and an abundance of flora and fauna.
There are over 80 species of birds that live in the 400 hectare Kings Park.
