Northbridge has a chequered history with swamps, lakes, immigration, brothels, opium dens, gambling, nightclubs and now, many cool bars, restaurants and impressive public
When the gold boom hit, the population of Perth quadrupled, and these immigrants needed somewhere cheap to live. That became the “wrong side of the tracks”. With the train line being sent underground, Northbridge is part of the city and evolving at a rapid rate.
Explore Northbridge during the day time and uncover the stories of the minority groups that have made it the diverse place that it is today, including the Chinese, Italians and Greeks. En route, enjoy a coffee, pastry, Asian street food and finish the afternoon with beer tastings at the Northbridge Brewing Company, plus a tour of the brewery.
Starting in the Northbridge Piazza on Lake Street, explore the Workers Cottages, early industrial buildings, public artworks and of course, licensed venues in a fun and relaxed environment.
