Mosman Park is a western suburb of Perth, Western Australia on the north bank of the Swan River in the local government area of the Town of Mosman Park. "Mosman" is pronounced with an "z" //, unlike the Sydney suburb of Mosman, which is pronounced with an "s" //.
Mosman Park is bounded by the Indian Ocean and the Fremantle railway line to the west, a line south of Johnston Street to the north, and the Swan River to the east and south. Today, almost all of Mosman Park is residential, although significant parklands exist at Buckland Hill and along the river and coast.
At the ABS 2001 census, Mosman Park had a population of 7,260 people living in 3,750 dwellings, about half of which were detached houses on separate lots. Several mansions are located within the suburb. The ABS identified property, business services and health as the main occupations.
Mosman Park is part of the federal division of Curtin. The federal seat is held by the conservative Liberal Party. It is regarded as a safe seat as it has been continually retained by the Liberal Party with the exception of former Liberal member Allan Rocher as an Independent politician between 1996 and 1998. For the parliament of Western Australia, the state electoral district of Cottesloe is also held by the Liberal Party.
