Mount Hawthorn

Mount Hawthorn is an inner-city suburb located to the north-west of the city and North Perth. Scarborough Beach Road (formerly known as North Beach Road) bisects the suburb. The suburb is almost all residential apart from retail businesses on main roads. The area was first subdivided in 1887. A syndicate owned most of the land up until 1903. Mr Hicks, one owner, called his portion Hawthorn after the Melbourne suburb. The word Mount was later added
