Just three kilometres from Perth CBD lies a realm of vintage charm and contemporary conveniences.

North Perth, an old and established suburb, is nestled just three kilometres north of Perth’s central business district, exuding an aura of historical significance.

Deep Dive

The Genesis and Evolution of North Perth

Beginning with the earliest subdivisions in 1898, Solomon Herman’s Gold Estates of Australia acquired Lot 653 from Farmer’s estate, leading to the creation of the prominent “Percy Estate”, which spanned south of the now-famed Angove Street, named after the surveyor William Angove. By 1901, the area, initially recognized as Woodville and Toorak after the early estates, adopted the name North Perth, quickly becoming a favored residential spot due to its affordability and proximity to the city center. By 1903, the swift expansion of subdivisions had extended North Perth’s street grid to the crossroads of Walcott Street and Wanneroo Road, setting the blueprint for a community that would see most of its housing developed between 1895 and 1935. This burgeoning suburb was further enriched with the establishment of the tram service on Fitzgerald Street from 1900 to 1953, which not only enhanced accessibility but also significantly contributed to the rapid population growth and infrastructural development.
