Locality Guide


LJ Hooker City Residential is located in the heart of the vibrant East Perth cafe strip.

Development of the "New East Perth" began just fifteen years ago and what was once a derelict industrial area has been transformed into one of the most sought after locations in Perth. $17.5 million was spent upgrading what was formerly the old Gas Works site and the first residential land was released for sale on Constitution Hill in 1994.

The architecture is innovative and colourful and has given a real "Mediterranean" feel to the area. From the historical East Perth Cemetery in Wittenoom Street to the $100 million dollar Majestic Quay development on the South Cove. The development has embraced the new, whilst still retaining the best features of the old. The history of the area is fascinating and can be explored through many fine Public Artworks displayed throughout the development.

Attractions

With most of the residential lots around the 200 spm size, care was taken to incorporate plenty of recreational areas in the New East Perth. Leave the car at home and take a stroll to Haig Park with its barbeques, attractive fountain and seating which provides a restful area.

The beautiful Victoria Gardens are the location for both the April Claisebrook Carnival and the December Picnic in the Park, from here you have access to the magnificent Swan River.

The Claisebrook Inlet, known widely as "The Cove" is the jewel in the crown and is the focus area for many of the community’s functions. One of the best times to view this area is when the sun is going down. The view in the early evening across The Cove to the beautiful Perth City is magical.
 

Facilities

Royal Street is where your shopping is done in East Perth. It boasts everything from cafes to travel agents and much more.

Construction is also well underway on the Fini Group’s five star waterfront hotel and luxury residential appartment complex. Majestic Quay includes a cafe and shops, construction for this has now been completed, the hotel complex is due for completion by Christmas 2001.

 

Transport

One of the great advantages of living and working in East Perth is its proximity to the City of Perth and the easy access to all other suburban areas.

A network of riverside footpaths and cycle-ways link the foreshore with the Claisebrook Cove and extends into residential and commercial precincts, offering a healthy transport alternative.

Travelling is made easy with the free "Cat" bus service running in the East Perth area, which travels to and from the Central Business District of Perth.

The new Graham Farmer Freeway is now open, making your journey even easier. With the City Northern Bypass now linking Great Northern Highway and Orrong Road in Rivervale via the Northbridge Tunnel to the Mitchell Freeway in Leederville.

Local train services operate from both Claisebrook and McIver stations. The Indian Pacific also operates from the East Perth depot taking passengers to and from the Eastern States.
