Orientated east-west, the road starts at the Causeway traveling west through the suburbs of East Perth, Perth, West Perth, and Subiaco, where the road originally terminated at the Subiaco. A subway under the Fremantle railway line was constructed in the early 1900s, replaced when the railway was moved underground through Subiaco in 1999. From that point it becomes Underwood Avenue through Jolimont, Floreat (past Perry Lakes) and ends in Swanbourne.

There are many shops, cafes, hotels and even money changer. Make sure you bring lots of cash to spend there. William Street and Barrack Street is just around the corners, just walk few meters and you’ll find lots of fantastic shopping mall and wonderful buildings.
