Mt Lawley is a vibrant and dynamic area with bars, eateries, venues and events. It's also known as one of Perth's "most stylish suburbs." We thoroughly recommend exploring Mt Lawley's central hub, which is situated only minutes from the host campus. Tourism Western Australia ranks Mt Lawley as a top destination, noting that:
"Art and art history buffs will also be struck by Mount Lawley's fine examples of architecture from the first half of the twentieth century, including Federation, Colonial, English Vernacular Revival, Art Deco and Californian Bungalow style dwellings. The Astor Theatre - a multi-purpose venue built in 1919 - is well known for its fine art deco designs. For those looking to make Mount Lawley their basecamp for a city break, there are plenty of motels, bed and breakfasts and holiday apartments to choose from."
