Spotlight on Preston Street
Preston Street in Como is full of history and local charm. The 1938 art deco Cygnet Cinema is currently undergoing a refurbishment and the façade has had a stunning facelift, being repainted in yellow as it was decades ago. While work is taking place, you can check out the local history display outside the theatre created by community-led group, the Como Town Team.
The Karalee Tavern and Bottle Shop and Windsor Lodge with its Juniper and Bay restaurant are renowned around Perth, and have been favourites for generations.
