#SnapPerth: tourist attractions and community vibe make Bayswater what it is, says councillor

LONG-TIME Bayswater resident Giorgia Johnson says the suburb is filled with tourist attractions and has a “real community” vibe.

The newly-elected City of Bayswater councillor has been serving coffees from her coffee van, Cool Breeze Cafe, at Riverside Gardens for the past five years.

“What I like about Bayswater is it that is close to transport, close to the city, close to the river, close to the railway line and close to the airport,” Cr Johnson said.

“Riverside Gardens is the off-leash area in Perth and it is a very well-known park so people like to come down here; it is a nice play space.

“So many people come from outside the area to Riverside Gardens including people from the Hills, Joondalup and Thornlie.”

Cr Johnson said the new toilet block at Claughton Reserve, the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary, Baigup wetlands, Bayswater Waves, Ellis House and the little cafs in the town centre were among Bayswater’s best attractions.

For iconic attractions outside of Bayswater, she listed the electric ferry along with “lively” festivals such as the Fringe Festival and Awesome Arts Festival in Perth’s CBD.
