raoulbianchetti perth australiaPerth is the capital and largest city in the state of Western Australia. It is the fourth most populated city in Australia. The city of Perth, Western Australia is divided by Swan River and Canning River. These both rivers form a ‘Y’ shape with prongs facing eastern direction. Thus people generally divide Perth by referring places in ‘north of the river’ & ‘south of the river’ in reference with the Swan river.

Let us now focus on the residential areas in Perth, Western Australia.

• Northern Suburbs: In the northern side of Perth, Western Australia people generally demand housing near the river. There are various suburbs that aren’t far from the river flowing through Perth. There is one such city Cottlesole that is situated between the city and down the coast of the river. This city holds one of the most posh housing colonies as houses have a panoramic view. Most of the rich & reputed business demand housing in Cottlesole, Perth. Other than cottlesole, one could get prestigious housing in areas like Subiaco, Nedlands, Claremont, Dalkeith, Cottesloe, Mosman Park, & Peppermint Grove.

The best part is that not only finds expensive houses are in these suburbs but many low income housing with decent features are easily found. One of such housing is found in Subiaco. Many low income group housing exists that have worn out infrastructure, weak structures and other weak spots do exist.

• South side of river: Let us now focus on the south side of the river. There are three major suburbs normally considered for housing, these are Applecross, Bicton, Freemantle. These suburbs are known for their beautiful sights such as overarching trees with leafy streets straight out of a romcom movie, gorgeous river facing houses with high price tag and other beautiful natural things which one dream of. But one thing that puts off is the transportation to the city among rush hours. This is because there is one way out of Applecross that is the Canning Highway with low speed limits, red lights and rush hour traffic that chokes it.

• South Perth: As we up the river from Applecross we enter into South of Perth, Western Australia. Housing in South Perth is famous for its river views. One could easily see buildings in the grey mist across the river water and at night buildings fading away into city lights. Most dominant housing type is the apartments. Most of the apartment buildings crowd near the river competing which one is the tallest. Apartments here are famous among bachelors and young married couple. Here in south of Perth people get out in the evening for a jog, or a walk, some may visit nearby restaurants and cafés, thus indicating a well-bred neighbourhood with social activity. The best part of South Perth is that it connects closely to the city. From the land of Apartments a few turns one gets on to the Kwinana freeway and a short trip into it gets one into the city.
