"Avoid the Bayswater crime hub and you will be fine."

I've lived in the City of Bayswater all my life and Bayswater itself for over five years. The first two years were great, then I moved closer to the train station and pub. Now my life is a misery of antisocial behaviour every night, not just on weekends. They even tried to close down the police station but thank goodness it didn't go ahead. I've been burgled more than once, seen street fights, domestics, car fires, had people passed out on the verge, somebody letting off fireworks, a constant stream of misdirected taxis arrive in my driveway. I've had to wipe blood off my front door. Thankfully, I don't have children because despite the school up the road, nobody follows the speed limit. Bayswater used to be lovely, since they shut down other nightlife spots, the nightlife has moved to Bayswater and brought all the trouble of the city out to the suburbs. The houses are now overpriced, too.
Pros
  • Close to Shops
  • Good Transport Links
Cons
  • Crime
  • Cost of housing

EmilyK1 We live on Guildford road and have had someone jump our back fence and run through our yard on their way to break into our next door neighbours house. Our other next door neighbour had his tires stolen right off his car. I've been hassled a couple of times by people at the bus stop outside my house to. As soon as I go down one of the side streets though the atmosphere changes completely it's a lot nicer and calmer.

"suburb close to CBD"

Bayswater is a suburb of Perth, northeast of the CBD and is serviced by rail making an easy commute to those working in the capital. One of the major attractions of Bayswater is that it has the only Wave Pool in WA. The aquatic centre where is it housed also has training pools etc plus a fully equipped gym, fitness classes, child minding and coffee shop. Other sporting facilities in this area include a golf course, tennis courts, skate park, two indoor recreations centres as well as playing fields for numerous sports. Being so close the CBD there is plenty of shopping with large modern shopping centres and local stores, hotel etc. As far as education goes there are plenty of schools, pre primary, primary and secondary both state and private as well as further education institutions. Entertainment and night is not far away in Perth and there are numerous restaurants and fast food outlets in close proximity. The price of property in Bayswater is quite reasonable for both purchase and rentals considering how close you are to Perth.

mattenglish Bayswater is East of Perth, sorry.
Other than that, it is also close to Morley Galleria and close to major roads, the Airport as well as excellent rail service.

"Great investor Suburb... With big potential growth."

I have lived in Baywater for just over 2 years.

Bayswater is a good commuter suburb... with all amenities near by including parks, shops, cinemas, recreational center (Bayswater Waves), Airport. This suburb has great transport links to the rest of perth (10 minuttes on the train) and is good for families, couples etc.

There is a lot of development happening in the area... with housing refurbishment and development this has big potential.

"“Great place to live” (has lived here)"

I have lived here my entire life and will never move.
It is the perfect suburb. It is close to the city, the train station and bus stops are conveniently located. There is plenty of shops and restaurants, yet it's quiet and very family friendly.

"A wonderful place for all to live in"

Bayswater is perfect for all types of people. Families, couples, professionals and the elderly. There is something here to suit every lifestyle. There are shops, restaurants, schools bus stops and the train station all close by. As well as the river, bird sanctuary and plenty of parks for your dogs and children.
