Suburb Introduction

Mount Lawley: A Tapestry of Timeless Elegance

Where Heritage Meets Modern Living.

In the heart of Western Australia, Mount Lawley stands as an epitome of architectural diversity, beautifully marrying Federation and Colonial style homes with the distinctive characteristics of English vernacular revival, art-deco, and Californian bungalow designs. With a majority of these homes being single detached structures nestled on expansive lots, it’s easy to understand the suburb’s charm. A notable number of these residences, predominantly constructed of brick and tile, echo the past with their vintage designs, many of which have been lovingly preserved owing to their heritage significance. Additionally, Beaufort Street offers glimpses of modernity with its group and multiple unit developments.

Beaufort Street is not only a reflection of architectural evolution but also the nerve center of Mount Lawley’s bustling retail activity, especially around the Walcott Street intersection. It’s complemented by quaint local stores scattered around, catering to the daily needs of the residents. For recreation, the suburb beckons with its local parks, Inglewood Oval, and the multifunctional Hamer Park, while tennis enthusiasts can find solace at the courts near Memorial Gardens. An embodiment of educational excellence, Mount Lawley houses the Edith Cowan University campus, the WA Academy of Performing Arts, the WA Conservatorium of Music, and esteemed schools such as Mount Lawley Senior High School and Perth College. With the North Metropolitan TAFE and the St John of God Hospital in close proximity, the suburb seamlessly merges tradition with contemporary conveniences.

The Astor Theatre and Beaucott Building

In the heart of Mount Lawley, the iconic Astor Theatre stands as a testament to the suburb’s rich history. Established in 1911 and later refurbished in the art-deco style in 1939, the theatre graces both the City of Stirling Municipal Inventory and the State Register of Heritage Places. Just across the street, the Beaucott Building, erected in 1938, holds its own historical significance. As a representative edifice from Beaufort Street’s second development era, it showcases aesthetic beauty and offers invaluable townscape value to the region.
