Victoria Park

Vibrant inner city precinct Victoria Park, commonly referred to as ‘Vic Park’ by locals, lies just three kilometres east of the Perth Central Business District, bordered by the Swan River to its north west.

The suburb of Victoria Park derives its name from “Victoria Park Estate”, a development that took place there in the 1890s. It is believed the name was given to the estate because Queen Victoria was still on the throne.

The town of Victoria Park comprises the suburbs of Victoria Park, East Victoria Park, St James, Carlisle, Lathlain, Burswood, and parts of Bently and Welshpool.

Running through its centre is the precinct’s high street, Albany Highway, which boasts a variety of cafes, restaurants, pubs and entertainment. Diners and pub-goers can choose from cuisines including Indian, Middle Eastern Vietnamese and Italian; or to relax and mingle at one of the well-known heritage style pubs.

Burswood Entertainment Complex, home to the Burswood Casino, a number of restaurants, including the award winning Rockpool Bar and Grill, Burswood Theatre and Burswood Dome, is one of Perth’s key entertainment hubs, and is located on the riverside of Burswood in the Town of Victoria Park.

The Town of Victoria Park is also the perfect place to take in the spectacular eastern views of Perth city from across the Swan River. Pack a picnic, or enjoy a number of outdoors activities. Within the Town there are a number of parks, from local community parks with play equipment to larger reserves catering for sporting activities; the Town also has a skatebowl located on McCallum Park along with the Aqualife and Leisurelife centres providing activities for children, teens and adults.

Visitors can reach Victoria Park by train, bus or foot from Perth city.
