Top 10 things to do in Inglewood
Inglewood is one of Perth’s hidden gems, with an array of things to do, see and taste it’s certainly a place to check out and add to your 2021 list of local places to check out. The best part? We have a range of brand-new luxury double-storey apartments available from as little as $579, 000. Nicheliving Sky Homes gives you the chance to live an inner-city lifestyle on the iconic Beaufort Street Strip.
There is nothing quite liking enjoying the simple pleasures in life like sipping on a well-made coffee or enjoying a cheeky glass of wine as you watch the world go by. Buzzing morning, noon and night, the Mount Lawley café strip has long been a favourite street to grab a drink, kick back and people watch. You will be spoilt for choice with the range of cuisines available on the Beaufort Street Café strip. A couple of our favourites include 2 Fat Indian if you’re feeling a like a curry with a side of naan, pasta by the metre if your craving some Italian and The Modern Eatery for those who enjoy a bit of Japanese. The Queens is also a great option for those pub grub queens, famous for their pizzas and forever rotating beer taps.
It’s Perth’s version of Central Park minus the crowds, Hyde Park is a breathtaking park located in the middle of suburbia. Surrounded by lark lakes, stunning trees and an abundance of wildlife, Hyde Park is a destination for everyone. We highly recommend packing a picnic rug, grabbing a coffee from Chu Bakery across the road (and one of their famous pastries of course) and settling in for a day in the park with your favourite pal or book. Hyde Park is in ideal location for weddings, birthdays, picnics, BBQ’s and exercise and the best part is, it’s dog friendly so you can bring you furry friend with you.
