"Beautiful & Convenient Bull Creek"

We've stayed in the vicinity of Darley Circle since 2013. We moved here to get close to Bull Creek Primary school and the Willetton High School. Little Jade loves school and loves playing at the huge park behind it. Older brother cycles to Willetton Senior High most days and seems keen (I'm hoping!) on studying Engineering at Murdoch Uni.
Unfortunately prices around these areas are still on the high side but you can find really good quality rentals. We're still Renting - Great Landlord!
The house we stay is around a kilometre to the Murdoch station so its a good short walk there if you don't want to park n ride - train station car parking gets pretty full in the morning so be quick!
Huge plus is that we've got a choice of Parry Ave IGA and Woolworths 5 mins away too! IGA seems to close later and opens on some public holidays I think. We always try to get the kids to walk and get the groceries - gets them moving and away from their screens.
Southlands, Melville, Kardinya Shopping Centres and Garden City at Booragoon are great for shopping but a bit further away.
If you're looking for a place in Bull Creek, I suggest the Rossmoyne/Willetton Senior High Catchment areas that's nearer towards the Bull Creek or Murdoch train station but a good distance from the Expressway and Leach Hwy as the noise and dust may be a bother. The other suburb that we were looking at previously was Bateman.

Other plus+:
- Great medical facilities around the area like Dental, Physio, etc.
- Fiona Stanley Hospital is pretty close, Dad rides the bike to work
- Wide roads
- Good access to Main Roads, South St & Leach Hwy
- Lots of great restaurants to choose from in the region
- Lots of sport facility choices
- So far loving the neighbourhood feel
- Houses generally on large blocks
- Short drive to Shelley Beach Park
- Great Primary and High Schools
- 15 mins drive to Perth City - 10 mins without the traffic!
- 30 to 35 mins Public Transport to Perth City on a typical morning weekday. Other times 25 mins!

The Not -:
- Weekday Morning, with the traffic jam, it will take 30-35mins to drive to Perth City
- Could do with more trees at parklands.
- Older but Quality homes are pricey
- Bunnings at High Road is lacking, Bunnings Melville is the one to go.
- The water dam at John Creaney Park is very sad


We've lived in Subiaco, Como, Belmont, Tuart Hill previously and can truly say Bull Creek is one of the best suburbs to be in.
Hope this helps somebody. :)
