Lathlain is a well-established residential area bounded by Great Eastern Highway, Orrong Road, Roberts Road and the Perth-Armadale railway. It has wide, tree-lined streets and attractive parks, including JA Lee Reserve and Rayment Park, as well as Lathlain Park, which since 1959 has been home to Western Australian Football League club, the Perth Demons, and is now the new headquarters for the West Coast Eagles.
Serviced by the Victoria Park and Burswood train stations, Lathlain has excellent access to the city and is very close to the attractions of the Burswood Peninsula and various amenities along Albany Highway.
Adjacent to Lathlain Park is Lathlain Place, which is a small commercial centre and a focal point for various civic uses including schools, a community centre and a scout hall.
