The Top 10 Things To Do In Maylands
Imagine living in one of lonely planet guide’s three ‘coolest’ suburbs – Maylands oozes vibrancy and buzzes with cosmopolitan charm.
Once considered Robin to Mt Lawley’s Batman, Maylands has recently emerged from the shadow to define itself as a cultural hub. Blessed with close proximity to the city, rail access and nearby tertiary campuses for TAFE & ECU, Maylands is a still affordable up and comer with a huge upside for savvy buyers. Come and explore the neighbourhood with us and be inspired by the enviable lifestyle waiting for you.
Small bar stalwart Swallow merges French Quarter chic with New Orleans jazz to deliver all the vibey feels. Train carriage booths, eclectic cocktails and fine wine both in bottle and glass, this is the setting for the Sunday sesh to beat all Sunday seshes, live jazz supplied on the house. We say Oui!
Play A Round
Maylands Peninsula, one of Perth’s best public courses, is also one of the most picturesque, nestled on the banks of the Swan River. Grab your mates, grab a cart and watch the boats float by as you reel off the birdies. Membership, comp and social play all supported.
Go Low And Slow
Get your ‘gram smoking at Gusface Grillah’s Perth BBQ School. These classes are the hottest ticket in town, booking out months ahead at each new class release. Whether you have a humble weber, or epic offset smoker, these classes will propel your brisket to new heights. Clearly you can’t learn BBQ without a few frothy inspirations, so imagine being able to walk home after class, full of beef & beer.
Street Art Central
Maylands & Mount Lawley are the heart of Perth’s street art movement, and that’s saying something as Perth ranks 3rd globally as a street art mecca. With works from some of the biggest names such as Anya Brock & Daek William, 8th Avenue and Beaufort St abound with vibrant colour and hidden surprises. Grab your four legged friends and take a self-guided tour of artistic discovery using the map from our good friends at https://streetsofperthwa.com/
The underground music scene of Perth doesn’t get more underground than Lyric’s Underground, Maylands premier music & comedy venue. There’s a gig going on almost every night, but outside that there’s also Live In The Laneway Sundays, or just come in for a bite and a drink – Konrad slings a mean cocktail. Oh, and did we mention it’s next door to Seasonal? Progressive Sunday crawl anyone?
8th Avenue’s diverse and inclusive book & game shop, Rabble, has something for everyone, with plenty of surprises you didn’t know you needed, but absolutely must have. Whether it’s a jigsaw, novel or hard to find, and even harder to play euro boardgame, it will be amongst the high-stacked shelves at this local gem.
Vino au Naturale
Maylands and surrounds are blessed with a bevvy of top end independent bottle shops, but new(ish) kid on the block, Commune, carves its own niche with a focus on nouveau varietals and low intervention technique wines. This neighbourhood shop champions small, independent producers…regularly featuring local winemakers at their popular free Friday evening tastings.
On Your Bike, or by foot or kayak
Maylands is absolutely riddled with bike paths, parks, lakes and walking trails. There’s plenty of green space with playgrounds for the kids, and exercise parks for the furry ones. These very well-maintained areas take in Maylands Peninsula, former home to Perth’s first airport and are well serviced with amenities including spots for a morning coffee and even a permanent wood-fired pizza food truck. Maylands Yacht Club is a great place to learn to sail or to launch your kayak.
