My girlfriend and I are moving to Perth in July to start our 12 month working holiday visa. We have been backpacking around Asia for 6 months and looking forward to settling down in our own 1 bedroom apartment. We have been looking at places on Malcolm Street and just wondering if this is a good area (i.e safe, good transport, restaurants, bars, central, etc...) We will be looking for any kind of work so commuting may be necessary. Our budget for weekly rent would be about $260.
Thank you in advance for your help!
