Kensington is a small but sweet suburb, with lots of older-style character homes and modest villas. It’s all about the family lifestyle in Kensington — more than half the suburbs residents have children, and most of the properties are free-standing houses with yards and leafy gardens. Kensington Primary School, South Kensington School and Kent Street Senior High School have a community feel that matches the rest of the suburb. There are a couple of popular cafes where you’ll regularly find the local mums and dads catching up for a coffee and a chat.
Kensington is six kilometres south of Perth CBD, bordered by South Terrace and Canning Highway. Close to inner-city hubs, like Victoria Park and South Perth, the suburb is known for its convenient location as well as its parks, reserves and natural open space. Kensington Bushland, a nine-hectare remnant of preserved bushland, is the perfect place to walk the dog or spot the different Banksias and Eucalypts. Bill McGrath Reserve has a playground and basketball hoop and Morris Mundy Reserve comes alive on a weekend with kids’ sports, families having picnics, and the occasional outdoor movie screening or community open day.
As an easy living suburb, Kensington has minimal retail facilities — it’s focus is more on outdoor activities, community and natural beauty. There is a small supermarket in the suburb but neighbouring areas have larger shopping centres. It’s also close to Curtin University and has a bus service connecting to nearby train stations.
