Mt Hawthorn

Mt Hawthorn Town Centre is defined by its unique landscape character and rich history. 

Mt Hawthorn has evolved from a satellite centre serviced by trams in the late 19th century, to a cosmopolitan migrant settlement, to a community oriented suburban village with a bustling local centre. Mt Hawthorn Town Centre is a highly valued, attractive local destination which presents opportunities to better service the local community and accommodate additional residents.
