There are many reasons why we love the City of South Perth here at Bourkes. Not only does the South Perth foreshore offer incredible views of our city skyline but the sunsets along the river are second to none. Sighting dolphins under the Narrows Bridge is a common occurrence and you can’t get a better view of Perth’s famous Australia Day Skyworks anywhere else. The South Perth foreshore is also currently undergoing an amazing makeover as announced by the City of South Perth in May this year.
