East Perth, WA

Sep 2023 - 7 days

East Perth, as the name suggests, is located just east of Perth CBD, and we stayed there for a week in a fairly battered serviced apartment (that didn’t get serviced). We walked the 45 minutes into Perth CBD a few times to go to a really excellent Japanese lunch place (amongst other reasons).

In East Perth itself there was a Filipino dessert/coffee place and also a Latin American grocery store – what more could you want?

As it was so centrally located, we did a lot of walking around the nearby suburbs – including Mount Lawley and Highgate. On the weekend, we did a 12km loop walk over the river to South Perth via Heirisson Island and back again via Narrows Bridge and the CBD.

The good

  • Visiting Taka’s Kitchen Japanese Cafe in the CBD
  • Latin American grocery store nearby
  • Easy to walk to lots of places

The not so good

  • Apartment was a bit rough and not very clean
  • Battery went flat on electronic door lock and we had to wait 45 minutes for someone to come and let us in
