Whitfords Avenue is an arterial east-west road located in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. It took its name from the Whitford Satellite City development through which it was built in the 1970s, which was later split into the suburbs of Hillarys, Padbury, Kallaroo and Craigie. In 1985, the part of West Coast Highway between Hepburn Avenue and Whitfords Avenue was renamed to Whitfords Avenue.

Apart from the Westfield Whitford City shopping centre, Whitfords Avenue also passes through two open spaces, Craigie Open Space near Mitchell Freeway, and Yellagonga Regional Park near Wanneroo Road.

It is allocated State Route 83 east of Marmion Avenue, and Tourist Drive 204 between West Coast Drive and Northshore Drive.[1]

It is a four lane dual carriageway east of Endeavour Road, near Westfield Whitfords, as well as between Hepburn Avenue and Northside Drive/Tenerife Boulevard, and is a two lane single carriageway elsewhere.
