Once renowned for its dubious pubs (mostly updated), the Peninsula Golf Course (still there), and an assortment of antique and bric-a-brac shops down on Whatley Cres near the train station (disappearing), a bunch of local developers, investors, and the City of Bayswater took a good hard look at Maylands, realised it had the potential to be the next “hot” near-city suburb, and began to invest. The result? A renaissance leading to it being ranked by Lonely Planet as among the three coolest neighbourhoods in Australia.

Maylands now has a thriving daytime café scene, some very funky retail outlets, a substantial and popular community centre – The Rise - and a growing sense of community pride and optimism. That said, it has a more grunge ‘tude than its suburban neighbours. There’s still the gun shop on 8th Avenue, a number of small, overfilled discount stores, a more diverse and transient population due to the amount of higher density housing, and an interesting assortment of train station patrons that continue to keep the suburb from becoming too gentrified – and that’s just the way the locals like it.

You’ll fall in love if: live music and a casual bonhomie are your scene.
