Reviews of Ashfield, WA

"Cheap riverside suburb!"

Ashfield is a small suburb along a beautiful section of the Swan river with easy access to public transport making it simple to get to where ever you want to go, just jump on the train and within a few minutes you can be drinking coffee at one of the great cafes in either Maylands, Bayswater or Guildford!)

Very cheap when compared to its surrounding riverside suburbs.

Bassendean council can be very difficult to deal with and is very unprogressive with a lot of its planning (not a bad thing if you are looking to buy in the area because they have kept the price down)

Good place to live with a lot of future potential.

"Nice up and coming"

Ashfield is value for money and will be a real earner in years to come.
When I lived here there was a touch of crime but those elements may have moved on.

"Forgettable."

Originally liked Ashfield circa 2012 but was then broken into once and had car stolen another time.
Wish it wasn't a bad experience but had to move.

"Great location to the city, main highways and airport, and area to be sought after in the future, especially the bushlands near the river"

Great location to the city, main highways and airport, and area to be sought after in the future, especially the bushlands near the river. Bought here in 2009, and took advantage of the generous block sizes.

Great for

  • Close to EVERYTHING
  • Easy commute to city
  • Lots of activities and sports
  • Quiet

Not great for

  • Fustrationly slow council to make decisions. Ashfield Precinct Plan is dormant forcing people to go to the WAPC to overule town council planning to get developments in

"Feels like a village, yet in such a central location!"

we have lived here for a year now and love it - it's got so much to offer!
it is a Small, Friendly, Undervalued suburb!
Public transport is fantastic with a 15 min commute to the City.
Local IGA and Kebab shop. Ton of sporting facilities. Right next to the river and the Ashfield Flats for jogging or walking...
Big blocks of land still available - once the Bassendean council changes the R zoning this suburb will grow exponentially!

Great for

  • Easy commute to city

Not great for

  • Bad reputation for its Gov Housing (which are decreasing year on year)

"Small Riverside Suburb"

Friendly neighbours, so close to the city but has a rural feel. Beautiful river with dolphins, turtles, and plenty of fish.

"Small Friendly Riverside Community"

Ashfield is located in a handy area close to the city and roads north/south/east/west and the train line with Perth airport located on the other side of the river. This suburb is popular area for Kayakers to live close to the Swan River.

It's an older suburb established in the mid 1900's - many of the older homes have either been renovated or replaced by modern homes.

Recreation is fantastic with playing fields on the corner of Colstoun Rd and Guildford Rd used for Soccer, Dog training, Fire Brigade sports and other outdoor events. This site is used for fireworks on Australia Day - it's more impressive than the city display as you can sit close to all the action!

The community is bounded by the Swan River which offers areas for walking, swimming, Kayaking (Australia's largest kayak club -Ascot Kayak Club is immediatly opposite!), cycling, boating and is popular for fishing. Dolphins are regularly seen passing by.

I've lived in the area for 16 years and seen it transform from a dingy Homewest area to a renewed vibrant community, 2 key reason for the change were the closing of the Ashfield pub and the reduction in Homeswest housing.

It comes under the Shire of Bassendean who seem to be good to deal with, they promote a lot of free community activites including out door movies, bands on the river, youth events, fire works and more.

Like any community it has some bad element however I've can't think of any other place in Perth I can live so close to the river in such a great community with affordable homes...
