King Street is located in the CBD of Perth, Western Australia. The street has a very European feel with its early 20th century, low-rise architecture and restored facades.

Commonly known locally as the start of the "West End" - it transverses two of Perth's major street Murray Street and Hay Street, between the two there are around a dozen shops which include many high-end stores such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Kookai, Bally, Georg Jensen, Tiffany & Co., Sass and Bide, Watches of Switzerland, Zomp, Dilettante, Hunt leather, Longchamp and many other stores and cafes.

Other High end retailers surround King street on Hay Street including - Burberry, Emporio Armani, Canali, Hugo Boss and Apple.

During significant changes in the Perth CBD in the 1980s King street was recognised as being a significant remnant of Perth's earlier streetscapes.[1][2][3]

The street precinct is listed with the Heritage council of Western Australia.[4]
