History

Northbridge was officially declared a suburb and named in 1982.[2] Before then, the area was part of the Perth Central Business District (CBD), and known by informal names like "North of the Bridge" and "North of the Line".

Geography

Located immediately north of the CBD, Northbridge is officially bounded by William St, Roe Street, Newcastle Street and the Mitchell Freeway.

The name Northbridge is often misapplied to areas and landmarks which are east of William Street and/or north of Newcastle St — such as the Perth Cultural Centre — which are technically still part of the CBD.

The area is largely a mix of commercial, public and residential properties.

Arts and culture

Northbridge has a wide variety of cuisine, including many Chinese restaurants, concentrated in Perth's official Chinatown, on Roe Street. It also has many other Asian, Italian and specialised seafood outlets.

There are also a plethora of drinking establishments and night clubs, many of them on James Street and Lake Street.

Transport

The area is accessible by foot from Perth Train Station and Wellington Street Bus Station. It is served by a free CAT bus and also has a significant number of public car parks, both open and high rise.
