The Town of Victoria Park is a quaint, leafy, quirky spot tucked away in the CBD's shadow on the other side of the Swan River. Made up of several suburbs, the Town is a small area centred around the vibrant and bustling Albany Highway. Famed for its culinary smorgasbord, lovers of fine food and dining will not be disappointed.
Representing nearly every country under the sun, you can find Vietnamese, Nepalese, Thai, Lebanese, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mexican, Modern Australian, Indonesian, Japanese and more. Whether you're after a rich, smooth or exotic coffee buzz in a funky place-to-be-seen, or home-made delicacies that are raved about over Perth, there is something to tantalise your taste buds and delight the senses.
However it's not all about the food. Take a stroll off the main strip and step back in time with some of Perth’s most beautiful and original cottages. Preserved and maintained, in a dazzling display of pastels, blue, yellow, orange, purple and green with white picket fences, climbing roses, wrought iron cornices and beautiful bay windows. The leafy area is a melting pot of cultures, a mix of young and old, modern and traditional. With several kilometres of river frontage, you must visit McCallum Park and marvel at the breath taking view of the city. Enjoy a picnic, or barbeque on the river and let the kids enjoy the playgrounds.
What could be better than spending a Sunday afternoon sipping an ice cold beer in one of Victoria Parks four pubs? From over 100 years old, to brand new and funky, there’s something for a fresh summer day in the sun, or a cosy winter night with an open fireplace and live music.
The Town is a celebration of food, art and culture. For people in search of a Vibrant Lifestyle, look no further than the short drive across the causeway.
