Perth’s light industrial areas are strategically placed throughout the Perth metro to allow businesses to set up their locations near arterial roads that can carry trucks and heavy machinery. In most cases, this means being on the fringe of inner Perth to allow vehicles to quickly get on freeways that will take them to other areas of the state or freight hubs like Fremantle Port, Perth Airport or freight rail terminals.

If you’re looking for a warehouse, factory, workshop, distribution facility, read this quick guide to Perth’s industrial areas.
