The area is one of the main industrial areas of Perth, along with Kewdale, Kwinana Beach, Henderson, Malaga, O'Connor, Canning Vale and Osborne Park.[1]

It is the location of the Welshpool railway station.

Welshpool is visually known for its 3 complexes of silo towers. These house storage of feed products for the poultry and agricultural industries.

Welshpool is a traditional industrial suburb partly to the fact of its proximity to Perth Airport and short distance to the Perth CBD.
