Over here on the east coast, Perth seems so far away it may as well be on another planet. Ask locals what they know about it, and you’ll probably get the same handful of answers.
“It’s sunny.” “It’s laid back.” “It’s got great beaches.” “Ummm…Yeah…!”
It seems Perth still flies under the radar, even though it’s quietly evolved into a vibrant cosmopolitan city in the last decade. That’s great for local residents who love keeping their street a secret – but even better for you if you’re looking for a great new place to move to or invest in.
One of the most underrated suburbs at the moment is a place called Subiaco.
To help you see what you never knew you were missing out on, we’ve put together a quick Guide to Subi for Newbies.
Subi is one of Perth’s older suburbs, centred on the bustling Rokeby Road between the city and the sea. The gorgeous heritage homes and leafy streets create a vibrant community of charming streetscapes, home to The Regal Theatre, Subiaco Arts Centre and a host of trendy bars, restaurants and high street fashion outlets. As the first suburb west of Perth, Subi is one of those rare places that’s crazy easy to get to just about anywhere by foot, car, bus or train. 10 minutes to Perth CBD, 10 minutes to Kings Park, 10 minutes to Elizabeth Quay, 10 minutes to RAC Arena, 13 minutes to City Beach, 13 minutes to Optus Stadium, 25 minutes to the airport. We think you get the picture!
The Subi lifestyle is as relaxed or active as you want it to be. Like to keep it casual? Stroll down to the vibrant café strip for your morning latte, shop for fresh groceries and gourmet goodies at the Subiaco Farmers Markets, or walk your furry friend at the abundance of parks and open spaces. Love the social scene? Trendy restaurants, cafes and bars just keep popping up all over Subi. Meet friends for Friday night craft beer at Refuge Small Bar, catch a live show at the Regal Theatre, gobble up amazing pasta and delicious share plates at Lulu La Delizia, get hooked on roast duck boa and bang bang chicken at Rice Baby, or have coffee with feline friends at the quirky Cat Café Purrth – it’s all happening in Subi.
Some suburbs are ‘samey’. You know, the ones that attract the same people, with the same jobs, and the same lives, living in the same homes. That’s not what Subi is about, with a blend of lifestyles where anyone can live in their element. Large traditional homes, plentiful parkland and multiple school options attract families looking for a peaceful inner city lifestyle. Urban apartments are the go-to for young active singles and couples who want to enter the property market where they can take advantage of a vibrant, social inner city lifestyle. While aspiring executives working in West Perth and the CBD love the convenient terrace housing that makes getting to work quick and easy.
