The suburb of North Perth is approximately 309 hectares in size, with approximately 28 persons per hectare in 2011. It is an established area three kilometres from the Perth CBD, bounded by Green Street, Wanneroo Road and Walcott Street in the north, Venn Street, Monmouth Street and Norfolk Street in the east, Vincent Street in the south, and Loftus Street and London Street in the west.
Settlement of the area dates primarily from the early 1880s when the first land grants were made, with rapid growth taking place from the late 1890s into the early 1900s as land was subdivided. Expansion continued during the interwar and post-war periods. The population declined slightly during the early 1990s, and then increased gradually between 1996 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area. In 2011 the population was 8,548, growing to 10,160 in 2016. The City of Vincent predicts that the population of the area will reach 13,357 in 2036.
Homes in North Perth are mainly solid brick houses built in the early 1900’s, many of which are now undergoing extension renovations. Households are primarily couples with children that are likely to be repaying between $3,000 – 4,000 per month in owner occupied mortgages.
The median house price is currently settled at $815,000 after a low in May 2016 of $690,000 and a high in February 2016 of $1,000,000.
Major features of the area include North Perth Plaza, Beatty Park Leisure Centre (which was built in 1962 for the Perth Commonwealth Games), Beatty Park Reserve, Charles Veryard Reserve, Ellesmere Street Reserve, Hobart/Auckland Street Reserve, Kyilla Park, Les Lilleyman Reserve, Multicultural Gardens, Redfern Street Reserve, Smiths Lake Reserve, Woodville Reserve, The Redemptorists Monastery, the Rosemount Hotel, Kyilla Primary School (which runs the amazing Kyilla Community Farmers’ Market) and North Perth Primary School.
