East Victoria Park is a charming slice of suburbia in the heart of Perth. Home to all sorts of businesses, community groups and residents, it has a relaxed and laid-backed vibe.
Albany Highway (aka ‘the strip’) is where you’ll find the action, and it also joins the suburb to its closest neighbour, Victoria Park. The strip hosts a large and diverse number of restaurants, cafes and bars. It’s the kind of place you can take a casual stroll at sunset, enjoy a drink at your local bar and order some authentic Japanese take-out on the way home. Coffee lovers are also looked after, with the smell of roasted coffee beans wafting through the streets most mornings.
The suburb attracts students studying at the nearby Curtin University, blue collar workers in a range of industries and small business owners who have set up shop in the area. Add a mix of cultures and you’ve got a true melting pot of people. It’s no surprise that family living is easy in East Victoria Park. Both large and small families are catered for with plenty of established homes available – the real ones, with backyards for the kids to play in and plenty of trees to hang a swing in. The majority of properties are houses but for those looking for a more compact living arrangement there is a growing number of apartments and units available.
Along with a choice of schools, East Victoria Park has recreational facilities Aqualife Centre and Leisurelife Centre for sports and fun, and Park Centre for all your basic shopping needs. Add nature reserves and a quick train ride to Perth CBD, and you’ve got yourself a suburb you can settle in.
