The constant building upgrades in Perth continue but it is still easy to get to the Academy. If you are into fitness, you can walk from the GPO “it’s only 600 metres”. Our location also has great access to public transport. The free Yellow Cat service goes right past the front door and Mclver railway station is only 5 minutes’ walk away. There is also an excellent cafe at the rear of the centre that provides a wide selection of foods.
