Northbridge is a small area in Perth.
Northbridge is close to the centre of Perth, the other side of the Perth railway station from the city shopping malls. Its the more place to go for the independent end of shopping, art and eating. It is being made even closer by a government project to sink the railway line and make it possible to walk between the city and Northbridge through a large development above the former railway yards.
After dark emerge a wide choice of restaurants and nightlife.
Though Northbridge is a small suburb its sphere of cultural influence blurs into neighbouring North Perth, Highgate and Mount Lawley.
- The William Street Collective, ☎+61 8 6468 3879, e-mail: hello@OnWilliam.com.au. An association of people involved in Northbridge’s cultural and creative industries. The website has current news and events – there’s always something happening!
- The easiest access is to walk from the railway or bus stations. If you drive in, it is always best to use the high rise car parks, rather than street parking.
Northbridge is an ethnically diverse and culturally rich neighbourhood.
- Perth Cultural Centre. The place to find Perth’s major galleries and museum. In addition, the amphitheatre (under the video screen screening ongoing visual confectionery) is an excellent vantage point for watching people flow between Perth’s railway station and places of work and play around Northbridge. See the page on Perth for more information on the major attractions.
- 1 Chinatown, 66 Roe St. Perth’s little Chinatown, with its own Chinese gate, is a good spot for picking up Asian groceries and also the best place for late night dining in Perth. Most venues are BYO. Chinese businesses in Northbridge are not confined to Chinatown but can be found throughout Northbridge, and most visibly along William St.
