Family friendly riverside suburb
Alfred Cove is where you’ll find the Perth Saints Football (Soccer) Club, Bicton Attadale Cricket Club, Melville Cricket Club, Palmyra Rugby Union Club, and Melville Bowling and Recreation Club making it a hub for local sporting teams. It has a variety of hospitality and service businesses close to Canning Highway with a focus on health and medical services, and has all your other shopping needs only next door in Myaree.
Being on Canning Highway, access and transport is made easy with bus routes straight to Fremantle or to the Canning Bridge Train Station, which will take you right into the CBD. A car ride to the CBD might take you less than 15 minutes.
The suburb is split in two parts by North Lake Road, with the western portion being quite low lying and the eastern portion enjoying some higher grounds and views to the Swan River. North Lake Road also sets boundaries for the local school intake areas which you can find more information on below. There are also a number of childcare centres available in Alfred Cove, making it a very family-friendly suburb.
