Why it’s good to live in Bayswater

With a location just 6km from the CBD and nestled on the banks of the Swan River, Bayswater has the best of both worlds when it comes to location.  Residents can catch the train on the Midland line to the city in a few short minutes. Spending weekends enjoying the vast riverside parklands that the suburb has to offer. 

Bayswater has been going through somewhat of a gentrification over the last number of years. Young families and professionals moving into the area, building or restoring homes. The town center has a number of cafés and a recently opened small bar.  Its local sports clubs are very active. Offering entertainment and meals to local residents several nights a week.  

From September 2019, the town center will also host a weekly growers market every Saturday morning.


Bayswater residents can walk to local cafes and small bars located in the town centre. Bayswater is also part of an extensive bike path network.  Cyclists can travel as far as Ellenbrook or Fremantle. All on the bike path network.  The suburb is home to Riverside Gardens. One of Perth’s most  popular off-lead dog parks. 

Bayswater is home to a number of community groups. Which run fun events year round in Bayswater WA.


Bayswater currently has two train stations on the Midland line. (Bayswater and Meltham). The stations link up to the Transperth rail network.  Commencing in 2020, Bayswater Station is set to have a brand new train station. Costing in excess of $150 million.  Upon completion, the station will service the Midland line and Forrestfield Airport Link.  Along with the new Ellenbrook/Morley line.   This will make the Bayswater train station one of the most important transport hubs in Perth.
