Having undergone significant transformation over the years, Vic Park has transformed into a bustling metropolitan area with a distinct personality and limitless investment potential.
Vic Park’s ongoing goal of being ‘a dynamic place for everyone’ applies not only to its diverse residents, but also to the assortment of businesses that call the Town their home.
Distinguished by nine distinct places, each area within the Town has its own strengths and attributes that make them ideal places to invest in across a range of industries. Whether you are wanting the wow factor that comes from the mega entertainment precinct on Burswood Peninsula, want to be amongst the innovation and entrepreneurship of Technology Park or are looking for the ideal place along the buzzing café strip to set up a hospitality hotspot, Vic Park has the ideal place for everyone.
Making it one step easier to finding the ideal place in the Town is Invest Vic Park, the Town’s first investment website which showcases everything Vic Park has to offer.
Each place within Vic Park is displayed on the site’s interactive map. This map showcases the key features of that neighbourhood giving potential investors the best opportunity to find the perfect area for their project.
Burswood Peninsula is WA’s premier entertainment precinct, home to Crown Perth, Optus Stadium, Burswood Park, Belmont Park Racecourse and the State Tennis Centre. Nestled alongside the Swan River and just a short 3 kilometres from the CBD, the Peninsula is one of Perth’s most desirable residential areas, aided by the abundance of public transport available.
Landmarks such as Matagarup Bridge, which connects the Peninsula with East Perth, and new tourist attractions including the bridge climb and zip-line, are key catalysts for future growth in tourism and foot traffic in the area.
The long-term vision for Burswood Peninsula being a vibrant and diverse urban setting is aided by the Burswood Park masterplan and growing desire for residential development. Upcoming projections for the area see it absorbing much of the Town’s population growth.
