“A broad, breathtaking view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

When I arrived in Perth, 28 years ago, we drove immediately to the Fraser Avenue Lookout to survey the city.
I recall the city basked in late summer afternoon sun with the expanse of crystal blue water creating a glorious prospect. Added to this was the purple haze of the Perth hills wrapping around the far horizon.
I still return to the Lookout and I never tire of watching the city in all its glory.

“Fabulous views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

The very best views in Perth are from this spot. They are a panorama of the city, the Narrows Bridge, the Swan River and the hills as a backdrop. There are plenty of grassed areas nearby, so a quiet seat or even a picnic will be worthwhile. There is always something happening, which makes the vista ever changing. The Fraser Avenue Lookout is definitely worh a visit.

“Best Views of Perth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Fraser Avenue offers the most spectacular views of Perth and the stunning Swan River. Pack a picnic, take a rug, sit back and just soak up the atmosphere. Anytime of the day is good, but sunset is extra special as the sun's rays hit the city skyline and cast a lovely glow across the city.

“Look out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great view over Perth central district from here. Good at night too especially if the Fraser Avenue gum trees are lit. If you are luck enough to be there on Australia Day evening its a great spot to see the fireworks. Better get there early to find the best vantage point. Don't forget to take a torch a radio and a picnic supper.
