The Welshpool industrial area is located just 3 km from the Kewdale Freight Terminal and 5 km from Perth Airport, and crosses the boundaries of the Cities of Belmont and Canning, as well as the Town of Victoria Park. The precinct within the Town’s boundaries contains a wide variety of storage, distribution, light industry, manufacturing and commercial services. The Perth economy is highly dependent on sea and road transportation and the wider Welshpool area makes a significant contribution through the network of warehouse and logistics businesses and transport depots.
With the development of the Westport Port and Environs Strategy and the focus on planning, development and growth of the inner and outer harbours, this industrial area is more important than ever to the economy. There are a number of vacant warehouses in the Town’s Welshpool precinct, with great connectivity to major transport routes.
