Welcome to Bayswater

Bayswater is a culturally diverse and vibrant neighbourhood that some 15,000 people call home.
Set against the 16ha backdrop of the Baigup Wetlands and stunning Riverside Gardens, Bayswater has earned the reputation of a suburb with strong community values and entrepreneurial acumen.
Local business leaders work seamlessly with a people fiercely protective of their heritage, culture and sense of family. Infrastructure for seniors and the vulnerable are part of Bayswater’s very fabric and residents are committed to thoughtful and strategic planning to sustainably manage the growth (nearly 7% over the last five years) and development of this bustling inner eastern hub.
The Wadjuk Noongar people are the traditional owners, having lived in the Bayswater area for thousands of years. The remains of a campsite found nearby on the Swan River are believed to be between 40,000 and 53,000 years old.
In 1881, the Perth-to-Guildford rail line was built. Along with many areas along the route, Bayswater experienced enormous change. There was a property boom and land grants kickstarted a subdivision. According to Landgate, Bayswater was named in 1885 after a property in Slade Street, which was named after the London suburb of the same name. Demand for property intensified after gold was discovered in the east of the colony. Many settlers chasing their fortune ended up in Bayswater.

Solid infrastructure, quality education options and an ideal location have meant demand has remained strong to this day.

These days Bayswater offers residents a classic suburban environment close to urban conveniences, picturesque parks and an eclectic offering of retail, cafes, restaurants and bars. Morley Galleria, one of Perth’s biggest shopping centres, is less than 3km away. The Bayswater Train Station and a convenient public transport network is a drawcard for both investors and residents. There is a solid selection of reputable public and private schools in the suburb and the area is well serviced by light industrial businesses, medical facilities and entertainment venues. Households in Bayswater are primarily couples with children and are likely to have mortgage repayments of $1800-$2399 a month. The dominant age group in the suburb is 30-39 years and 67.7% of homes are owner-occupied.

With hectares of public open space, 33 picturesque parks, numerous well-maintained sporting grounds and more than 3km of Swan River frontage, it’s easy to see why Bayswater is known as the “Garden City”.

Edgy small bar King Somm leads a pack of awesome hospitality options now and the café strip that is King William Street has a chilled vibe from the moment the sun peaks over Gobba Lake.
Well known for its family-friendly atmosphere and regular community events, Bayswater is considered by residents to be a place of relaxation, fun and recreation.

The suburb is also home to the wonderful Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary. This urban wetland is a haven for ducks, pelicans, white herons, swallows, honeyeaters and hawks. The surrounding Riverside Gardens are full of hiking trails and bird hides and during Spring the area is alive with families who come to see the ducklings.
