Floreat

Floreat is a residential suburb 8km west-northwest of the central business district of Perth, the capital of Western Australia. It is bordered on Underwood Avenue, Selby Street, Cromarty Road and Durston Road. It is the head of the Town of Cambridge, which has its municipal offices and library in the suburb. The name of the suburb stems from the Latin word for 'flourish' or 'prosper', which is also the motto of the City of Perth, which Floreat was a part of when it was first built.DemographicsFloreat had a population of 7,230 at the 2011 census, an increase of 205 from the 2006 census, and 277 from the 2001 census.Amenities and facilitiesThe Floreat Forum shopping centre is located in the suburb. The varied shops include Bakers Delight, Coles, Woolworths, Best & Less, Sussan, Katies, Lorna Jane, Red Dot, Gazman, Blue Illusion, Subway and multiple cafes such as Delish, Scope Cafe and Coffee Club. It sits adjacent to the Town of Cambridge municipal offices and library. The centre also boasts a fine dining precinct and upmarket tavern. The suburb also sits adjacent to the popular Cambridge Street dining and commercial strip in neighbouring Wembley.Floreat contains a range of sporting facilities, most notably Perry Lakes Stadium, the peak athletics venue in Perth. It was built as the centrepiece of the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, but subsequently fell into disrepair. It was demolished and is in the process of being redeveloped. The replacement stadium, Western Australian Athletics Stadium, opened in May 2009, with Perry Lakes due to be permanently closed soon after. The suburb also contains the headquarters of Rugby WA, Floreat Oval, and the Bold Park Aquatic Centre, with further facilities for tennis, lawn bowls and basketball.
