"An undiscovered gem!"

Chances are, that if you don't currently live in Edgewater or know anyone who does than you probably don't know all that much about this amazing suburb!
Located on the western side of Lake Joondalup, Edgewater benefits from fantastic walking and cycling tracks, as well as a large number of parks and playgrounds. Nature lovers love living here - there are always birds chirping, Swans down at Picnic Cove, and Kangaroos along Edgewater Drive. It is a very peaceful suburb, with no through-roads, meaning there is very little road noise throughout most of the suburb.
We've got a small shopping centre within the suburb, and plenty of shopping options only a short drive away at the Joondalup shopping precinct. We also benefit from having a dedicated train station, easy freeway access and medical facilities close by.
Edgewater is a lovely place to live! I know many of the residents don't want to leave and when they look to move, it's usually within the suburb.

"John"

I have lived here my entire life. It is a great suburb and it is much better to live in than so many other Perth suburbs especially as many Perth suburbs are bad and have high to very high crime rates. Edgewater is lovely beautiful clean peaceful and safe. It has a low crime rate it has lots of open spaces it has lovely big parks it has a beautiful lake it has a nice small shopping centre it has a train station and it's close to Joondalup. It is a great suburb to live in.

"Perfect"

Perfect spot for families to settle down where safety is never a concern. The train system makes daily commute easy and amenities are not plentiful but always sufficient.

"Perfect for families"

Beautiful and green suburb with easy access to Joondalup and Perth CBD thanks to nearby train station and freeway. Short drive to beach and shopping mall. Great walks along the National Park and lake bordering the suburb. Ideal for families.

"Quiet, safe with a cozy, homely vibe !"

I never lived this far north till I moved to edgewater and don’t ever wanna
leave!! Super safe, quiet suburb with a great community feel. You always see either kids walking to and from school, families playing sport at emerald, or people walking dogs. So much greenery, and nature. Close to joondalup where there is everything you need, and also right near the freeway / train line so easy to get anywhere! It’s just a great place to live.

I thought currambime was bad.

"Hidden treasure"

Great views of the ocean, lake or City depending on the aspect. Close to schools, shops, hospital, green space, transport (rail & road). Small enough community to be friendly and intimate, and light on traffic due to the absence of any min roads/cut-throughs.

Full range of house sizes from 3 to 6 bed with blocks up to 1,000m2

"Edgewater"

Has its own train station with trains to city taking 20minutes. The drive only takes 30 minutes (only 22km). Great primary school and out of hours school care. Mater Dei college for high school and ECU Joondalup for university. It is so close to Joondalup (south border) and has everything you need within a 2 minute drive, except the best beach in Perth - Mullaloo which is a 5 minute drive. Leafy green and established with a beautiful walk/cycle path around lake Joondalup and because of the lake there is so many birds. By far the best place to bring up a family in Perth.

Great for

  • Near everthing
  • Good community of families
  • Good public transport
  • Green and leafy suburb
  • Hilly and undulating Ground close to Lake and Nature Reserve

"Established suburb making a comeback!!"

A matured leafy suburb with beautiful undulating topography next to a nature reserve with numerous species of fauna and home to a vast variety of local animal species. The hilltops homes provide beautiful distant views of the city and ocean. The area is located strategically between the Mitchell free-way and Wanneroo Road and a stone throw from Edgewater train station. Few minutes drive to some of the best beaches in WA and up and coming world class marina complimented by the family favourite - Hillary's!!
Edgewater has all the ingredients for good growth as it is next to Joondalup the second hub after the city of Perth. With a expanding hospital, a world class university, quality schools and colleges coupled with shopping centres and good eatery's, Edgewater is poised to be rediscovered . With future rezoning in the plans and rare big blocks available this suburb will be an investors dream with options for subdivision in the future while enjoying the current benefits of a quiet, peaceful, healthy and vibrant neighbourhood.

  • Hilly and undulating Ground close to Lake and Nature Reserve
