Maylands

Posted on

Maylands is my place of residence when I am in Perth. We are fixing up the place slowly. Just done most of the garden, so far.

Maylands is a riverside inner-city suburb approximately 4.5 kilometres (2.8 mi) northeast of Perth centred on the Midland railway line on the northern bank of the Swan River.

Maylands was once a source of clay for brick and tile making, and the pits from these activities are now part of a golf course and residential area. It was home to Perth’s main airport which serviced all kinds of aircraft and even flying boats until the early 1960s, when the airport moved to Perth Airport. The facilities were then converted to a training area for the Western Australian Police Service.
