"Choose your area wisely"

I live near Russell Square and the music from Black Bettys Club is heard very clearly at night. We also have to endure a tribe of aboriginals that wander around the square during the weekdays - every single day - using incredibly foul language, very loudly, all day long. To those looking at living in Northbridge - the restaurants are fantastic and the access to the city is unbeatable, just choose your area very wisely.
Pros
  • dining
  • entertainment
  • Access to city - Blue Cat bus
Cons
  • Noise from the clubs
  • Swearing and vulgarity in Russell Square
  • Saturday nights can be rowdy

"Great place to live if you are young / get out and about"

The heart of Perth, brilliant night life. If you find the right place, you can achieve peace and quiet to escape the weekend mayhem that is northbridge, however if you are part of it all this is the place for you. Restaurants galore, free buses to town, walking distance to shops/entertainment.

"Love to buy bigger, but getting expensive"

Trying to upgrade. Would love to buy a house or a bigger apmt but alredy getting expensive (and will only get more so with all the new work - theatres, restaurants, plazas on top of the railway). Best day is Sat morning when i go shopping. Great village atmosphere and the local shopkeepers know me. Mix of old and new with lovely cottages in Lake St and fabulous townshouses near Russell Square. Can't wait for new theatre centre to open. Love living here!

"something for everyone.."

Northbridge has everything for everyone. Parks, shops, food, people, and it's really close to the city too. I have lived in wealthier areas but there is something about Northbridge - it really does have a positive vibe, and I'm not just talking realestate hype.
