Maylands isn’t your average Perth suburb. It’s a vibrant tapestry woven with creativity, history, and a touch of that special something. Want to live somewhere with character, charm, and a killer cafe scene? Then Maylands might just be your perfect match.


Creative Spirit Flows Freely:

Maylands hums with artistic energy. Take a stroll down Whatley Crescent and marvel at ever-evolving street murals by renowned Australian artists. Catch a live jazz performance by the illustrious WA Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO), or witness the graceful artistry of the West Australian Ballet, one of Australia’s oldest ballet companies.

For a quirky retail experience, don’t miss Stop Being Boring, a treasure trove curated by a local who isn’t afraid to embrace the unique.


Live Like a Local:

Getting around Maylands is a breeze. The train whisks you to Perth CBD in just 8 minutes, while buses, cycling paths, and even a walkable heritage trail connect you to everything you need.
