Reviews of Atwell, WA

7th October 2021

"Great suburb"

Atwell has been home for over a decade and we are very happy here. Great suburb for families with kids, or anyone really.
Close to two train stations and now the new metro rail thats coming up, close to Cockburn gateways and Atwell has it's own small shopping centres which is really convenient.
2 good primary schools within the suburb and Atwell College which I cannot comment on as I do not have children who go there.
Coogee beach is a short drive down Beeliar drive.

The council should pay more attention to maintaining verges and public walkways but other than that, it has been a safe and lovely place to live in .

"Would be good without the troubled youth"

It’s a very clean suburb with great parks and near to cockburn shops, but the kids around these ways couldn’t care about anything. My mate was robbed at knife point on the way back from the bottleo from kids who look no older than 15, besides that it’s a great suburb houses are modern and loads of families.

"My Home Suburb"

I have lived in Atwell with my family for 14 years. We have only bad that has happened is our front mat was stolen.

I advise to people new in the area and moving in: get security cameras and alarms for your house. That way you and your family will be safe.
Atwell has great access to the shops and freeway.

I recommend find a quiet street to live on, don’t be close to main roads, otherwise your nights sleep will be interrupted by cars speeding past.

There are some big property’s east Atwell, I recommend around that area.

"its great of you dont mind someone in your backyard every now and then"

were a family of 4 and moved into atwell in Feb 2020, were on the Cockburn page and have noticed people saying they've had someone trying to break in... and then we were one of them and later found at least everyone on our street had someone break into their house. Ive lived in Perth for 10 years in karrinyup, Scarborough, innaloo, north Perth, yangebup and have not once had a scenario of someone trying to get in. It seems the youth in atwell are causing trouble, so unless you have a deterrent in your yard I wouldn't recommend. it seems to be going to crap, such a shame since its a very nice neighbourhood with so many families. Theres a lot of teenagers from 13-17 just walking around in groups drinking/smoking and harrasing people for these things too, hopefully cosafe can clear these teens off but after having someone stare at me in the shower through my backyard window we are moving but we were moving anyway so it just made It more convincing.

"Good for young family"

Traffic Jam means, it is developing suburb.
Shopping centre, Train, freeway ,Arc, Bunnings, parks for dog walking and near schools...perfect location for life style. Especially has good walking path for walking, hard to speed car unlike other towns.
Feel Safe with neighbors.
Most of houses has swiming pool and bigger size of lot and more greenery compared to new suburb.

Minus point only one thing that seems like shool don't care much academic. Primary and College is inside of the town to easy to access but seems dont care much of study. Bottom of the school ranking in Perth.

"Very handy and nice place"

If you leave on the north side of Atwell, you are on walking distance to the train which gets you to Mandurah or CBD in 15 min, some places near the city do not get that fast on bus to the CBD....

Main 3 supermarkets just a short drive or walk to gateways SC and leisure center, great parks, safe suburb and beautiful houses around.

"Great, northbound fway needs work"

I love Atwell, we've been here for 2 years now.
We moved into a quiet cul-de-sac and it is still quiet.
Our street is very friendly. The street behind us is a bit dodgy and we have had some issues with lazy dog owners. The council has been helpful about 50% of the time but there are still issues.
The suburb seems to have been built around the local flora and fauna. As a consequence (in a good way) there are lots of well established reserves and trees.
It is a very family oriented place. We would like to see more people our age around, as it is mostly families in their 40s-50s with adult children (in Old Atwell) or with younger kids (in New Atwell).
It's close to Cockburn Central which means great food and shopping is available. Some of our favourite restaurants are here (we've lived in Perth for 30 years).
Easy access to the freeway, but does get busy, and the freeway north entrance is chokkas at ALL times of day.
Approx 25 minutes from Freo and the City.
Our only complaint is that it's not West Leederville or East Perth. Nevertheless it's a good place to start.

"Terrific place to raise a family"

Atwell, like its name inidcated, "at well", all is in well condition here in this suburb, houses are well designed in good shape block with beautiful gardens; different sizes of parklands or reserve suitable for kids to play or people to take to stroll; 20min to CBD, 20min to beach and 20min to airport. Its central location endows it a booming and terrific suburb up and coming!!!

"Little boxes, little boxes and theyre all made of Ticky Tacky!"

The houses all look the same on their small blocks all jammed Together. In Peak hour it takes 50 mins to get to the city. Mostly first home owners with large mortgages. Over-rated and over-valued. Much better value for money suburbs closer to the beach,river or city.

Good comment. What suburbs would you recommend? We've started looking now and would like to know what the good value for money suburbs are. Thank you.

crsnt

Small block? My house is about 570 m² . Peak hour nowadays is not that bad at all since they have widen the freeway. But since Atwell is just across the Cockburn station you can just catch the train - easy. Better value for money closer to city? If you have loads of money then it's different story. Price has become ridiculously high near the city and Atwell is perfect suburb for families in a nice quiet suburb. Cockburn is developing and it is close to Cockburn shopping center, many shops and warehouses.

amandas42

What's your idea of a big block? New developments not far from Atwell have blocks that are half the size of that in Atwell. Also, youll find most development estates have houses that look similar, so this is not unique to Atwell. The average land size around here is over 550 m2.

"A place like puppy love"

Atwell is a new and well-planned suburb with many high quality houses and great neighbourhood. Centrally location with 18mins to CBD, 20mins to beach and 20mins to airport enables it to be a great investment area or good suburd to live in. You can experience a trend of country style and modern city life style here. It should be a booming suburd in very soon coming future.

"I had a investment property here this is not Perths best suburb by a long shot ,Ratings on this forum are misguiding!"

Atwell is a badly located area far from Perth city and surrounding suburbs are industrial such as cock burn. I would advise others to purchase in better areas and would think areas such as Peppermint Grove, Dalkeith, Cottesloe, City Beach, Swanbourne, Claremont etc would be more worthy contenders for best suburbs in Perth, and think the ratings on this forum are misguiding.

I have investment property here as well and have no problem finding tenants. I also lived there for some time.
I agree it's not the 'best' suburb, but it's one of the 'best' places to live in.

Comparing this suburb and location to the suburbs you mentioned is a no-brainer. You're comparing 400-500k average compared to 1million+ properties? yeah sure..

J_KWQ

I have investment property here as well and it is so easy to find very good tenants to live in. Atwell is an attractive suburb with a lot of reserves and parks(different sizes), good schools and easy transportation.

It is really stupid to compare Atwell to Peppermint Grove. The price difference is 5+ fold. Atwell is much more affordable in comparison to above-mentioned suburbs. I live in it and apart from my always bickering neighbors, can't complain.

bazm

Bit out of touch aren't you? If you can afford PG, why would you be looking this far south?

amandas42

This is a ridiculous comment! If you have the budget for any of the suburbs you've mentioned, why would you buy in Atwell?

"Great place to live with great neighbours"

It is very close to Gateway Shopping Center and all big shops (including Bunnings, Good guys, Office works, etc) and they are still building more! There is a primary school as well inside the complex for families with kids :)

Transport is very easy with bus going around the complex and train station is nearby.

The neighbours are very friendly and they look after each other.

Overall it's an excellent suburb to live in and it is really quiet and peaceful. Can obtain fast NakedDSL too for internet connection!
