West Perth is an inner suburb of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. It is part of the inner mixed zone, and has predominantly office blocks which have displaced residential buildings. There is a high proportion of miners and consultants, and particularly medical specialists, compared to the Perth CBD. Most retail outlets are focused on serving the office population, and so are closed on weekends.
Notable exceptions include the Harbourtown factory outlet complex located near the eastern edge of the suburb, and the City West complex. This location was home to the Perth Metropolitan Markets from 1929 to 1989, when they moved to Canning Vale. Parliament House is located overlooking St Georges Terrace and Mitchell Freeway, and is at the centre of the Parliament precinct. Also in the precinct is Dumas House, the original Perth Observatory, the second location of Hale School, Solidarity Park, Edith Dircksey Cowan Memorial, and the Constitutional Centre of Western Australia .
