History


The area now known as Northbridge originally hosted freshwater swamps where the current railway station and railway lines are

Draining of the swamps commenced in the 1860s, by convict labour, facilitating the construction of more permanent buildings. The gold boom of the 1890s saw the construction of many hotels for the accommodation of prospectors, including The Great Western Hotel (built 1896, now the Brass Monkey Hotel). The 1890s saw the area house the attorney-general and many others from the elite classes.

It was for that elite population that several private schools were established in the area, such as Scotch College (1897) and Presbyterian Ladies' College (1915). These schools were subsequently relocated. Around the time of World War I, as the elite began to move out of the area, the area became a hub of European immigration, especially Greek and Macedonian.

In the 1950s, post-war European migration brought with it a culture of outdoor coffees and al-fresco lifestyle.

The area was previously a part of the Perth central business district, and was known by informal names such as "North of the Bridge" and "North of the Line".

Northbridge was split from Perth and officially gazetted as a suburb in 1982.






Culture



Northbridge Piazza

Northbridge today is a predominantly ethnic precinct, and contains a wide array of cuisine, including Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, and contains Perth's main nightlife district, which is centred on James Street and Lake Street. Northbridge's restaurant, cafe and bar scene varies from laneway bars and hole in the wall eateries, to prominent multi storey venues such as the Brass Monkey and Metro City concert club. Northbridge also hosts Perth's main Chinatown area centred around Chung Wah Lane.

The area has a historical connection to the Greek and Italian communities, with Perth's first Orthodox Church located on Parker Street.

The main public open space area in the suburb is at Russell Square. The Northbridge Piazza also serves as an open air communal space, which has been used as a venue to show free movies, live music performances, and broadcasts of popular sporting events.

In March 2018, Yagan Square was officially opened, a new public space between the CBD and Northbridge. The Digital Tower, the Marketplace and recreational areas are now available for tourists and residents.
