Applecross is an affluent riverside suburb of Perth, Western Australia, bounded by Canning Highway and the Swan River. It is located within the City of Melville.

Like the name Perth, the suburb of Applecross borrows its name from the region in Scotland. Many of the streets in the suburb have Scottish names.

The suburb of Applecross was originally assigned to Lionel Lukin on 28 May 1830. The land was finally acquired by Sir Alexander Percival Matheson in February 1896. Matheson, a Scot, formed the Western Australian Investment Company Limited and instigated the subdivision of the area, giving it the name of Applecross after a small fishing village on the north-western coast of Scotland.

A distinguishing feature of the suburb are the jacaranda trees which line its streets and which flower in the late spring. In keeping with this theme, Applecross is home to an annual Jacaranda festival in late November.
