"Like a holiday retreat!"

We built a house on a waterfront block in Champion Lakes in 2015. It's a beautiful suburb with a large, clean lake giving opportunities for swimming, kayaking, standup paddleboaring, bird-watching, walking, running and cycling to the local residents. There are clean, well-maintained parks with pergolas and BBQs which are always available. There are two beaches and a new commercial area with cafes and shops is being developed. The community is small, friendly, respectful and supportive. Aldi, GP clinic, pharmacy and takeaway shops are within walking distance. Perth Hills with local markets, wineries, nature reserves and breath-taking views are a short drive away.

"Champion Lakes - First Class Regatta Centre"

The area of Champion Lakes used to be part of Westfield (in turn part of Armadale) but was renamed when the Regatta Centre was built several years ago. The Champion Lakes Regatta Centre opened in 2009 and is a world class facility for rowing, kayaking and dragon boat racing. It is also open to the public and the man made lake has a small beach area and grassed picnic areas. There is limited private land use in the area and much of the suburb is larger properties around the Regatta centre. The area population is placed at about 200 people and access to other services and shopping is in Armadale. There is a new estate in development with new houses currently being built - it is being promoted as a prestigious estate so the quality of housing may be the best in the area. Only time will tell!
Pros
  • World class sporting venue!
  • New prestigious estate on the way!
