cherry's need a min amount of frost /chill temp. I wouldn't think it would be cold enough in perth metro.From what I've read most fruiting to eat cherry trees need around 400 chill hours.
You may be ok if you are in the hills.

You might be best to look at other options. Even subtropical cherries may not be capable of producing fruit in coming years. Estimates by both BoM and AMOS suggest Perth will be having a similar climate to Moora and Geraldton in 5-10 years. That will see temps out of reach of many low chill varieties of fruit trees to produce viable crops.

The Prunus nigra is a good ornamental alternative (sometimes incorrectly referred to about the urban areas as cherries)
