Welcome to Five!


Heading to the shops, school, University, river, park, local café or your friend’s house?

Is your destination less than five minutes away or within five kilometres?

Why not walk, run or cycle!

We are a community organisation working to make walking, running and cycling in Perth, Western Australia, easier, safer and more convenient. It is our aim that by 2020 we have a streamlined route of suburban safe active streets/bike boulevards connecting Perth City to the City of Fremantle.

View the original Nedlands network of streets map:

A network of of streets was developed in the City of Nedlands based on various criteria, including how easy they were to travel, the quietness of the streets, the linking of multiple activity centres and how direct they are.  This network was then prioritised to select one route to focus development, followed by other routes for the future.

The priority street chosen, and the current Nedlands Safe Active Street Project (along Elizabeth Street and Jenkins Avenue) is the original prototype which links activities centres through the City of Nedlands, including several shopping centres, the library, parks, churches, primary schools and university centres.

As the Safe Active Streets through each suburbs link together they will form a network that enables people to travel from Perth city via the rivers and the ocean to Fremantle.

The project to realise the Perth to Fremantle vision began in 2017 when Five partnered with ‘Perth to Port – Bike and Walk’.  Members now include Councillors from Nedlands, Claremont, Mosman Park, Cottesloe and Peppermint Grove.
