Perth, Western Australia
|Population||5,608 (2016 census)|
|Location||1.3 km (1 mi) from Perth CBD|
Formerly an exclusive enclave for wealthy merchants and politicians, the West Perth suburb is now part of the inner mixed zone, and has predominantly office blocks which have displaced residential buildings.
The suburb has a relatively high proportion of miners, consultants, and especially medical specialists as compared with the Perth CBD. Streets such as Colin Street, Ord Street, and Outram Street have a significant percentage of office and high density residential buildings.
Closer to the CBD, the eastern edge of the suburb features both the Watertown brand outlet complex and the City West complex. This location was home to the Perth Metropolitan Markets from 1929 to 1989, when they moved to Canning Vale.
Parliament House is located overlooking St Georges Terrace and Mitchell Freeway, and is at the centre of the Parliament precinct. Also in the precinct is Dumas House, the original Perth Observatory, the second location of Hale School, Solidarity Park, Edith Dircksey Cowan Memorial, and the Constitutional Centre of Western Australia.
