"Difficult to find a nice looking place away from powerlines"

The lake itself is beautiful and the local playground is massive. There are always families here, riders, joggers. There's a great community here and an active social committee. My only complaint was we couldn't find a house we liked within our price range. The places for sale faced massive powerlines and generators. If you get a good street you're golden. Not too far from South St and fway entrance.

"Bibra Lake - The Place To Be"

Recently moved to Bibra Lake after much research on it and other suburbs. Its a great peaceful, safe and happy suburb. Great lake to walk around for fitness, awesome neighbours, nature on your doorstep with plenty of tree coverage to keep the place nice and cool (unlike newer suburbs). Nice big blocks with proposed rezoning make the area a great investment for the future. Close to great primary schools, Leeming SHS, SJOG Hospital and Fiona Stanley. Can get bus to train station within 10mins and catch train into city easily. Theres evrn a bus to Fremantle.
Pros
  • Fantastic for families and young couples
  • Friendly community feel
  • Lovely lakes and wildlife
  • Secured living
  • Wonderful neighbourhood spirit
Cons
  • None

"Industrial Area"

Seriously, Bibra Lake??? Isnt like an industrial area full of Factories?
mjslater
mjslater The residential area is so far from the factory area that they are like 2 completely different suburbs. This is the perfect place to live and I wouldn't move if I had a choice of anywhere in Perth.

ColleenB1 I agree! Industrial area is in a totally separate part of Bibra! Google satellite it and you will see the division between the residential & industrial. We have been here 17 years & aren't looking at leaving any time soon :)

"The feel of a friendly country town - just 15 minutes from the city"

The people are lovely in Bibra Lake. There's a friendly atmosphere everywhere you go. In the late afternoons there are always people at the park with their dogs and children, everyone chatting to each other and making new friends. The lakes are also popular spots and so beautiful - very recharging. The wildlife is incredible - seeing eagles, owls, blue-tongued lizards and quendas about the place is not uncommon. It's a lovely little neighbourhood - in the evenings the delicious smells of homecooked meals fill the air, kids still play on the street and people always smile and say hello to you on their evening walks. It's like going back in time. I've never lived anywhere else that has such an inviting, community feel.
Pros
  • Lovely lakes and wildlife
  • Friendly community feel
  • Fantastic for families and young couples

BibraBeliever We live in the 'old' part of Bibra Lake and love it. Spent today bicycling around the lake twice and commented to my hubby how great it was that so many people are out and about on even today's rainy day. Polite, lovely neighbours, kids are well cared for and polite and smiley on our street and in the lake pathways. If we had a million dollars... would stay put here!
