"Absolutely Amazed!! Perths best kept secret!"

Reading reviews I was not sure about buying in this area however value for money was outstanding. The day we moved in we had visits from several neighbors welcoming us to the area and offering to help!!!!! Amazing where else in Perth would you have that we have made lots of new friends already and regularly enjoy a glass of wine. Local schools are excellent both primary and Ocean Reef high school is excellent my kids are very happy. Close to Joondalup shops, train station, ECU, hospital, beaches, swimming pool you name it and it won't be more than 5 minutes away. Houses are being renovated everywhere which is great. Crime is low I feel safe walking at night. I know people say there is no tavern but it takes us 10 minutes to walk to the Beldon which is a fantastic local pub with great food or a $5 uber ride to Joindalup - close enough to enjoy but not too close to cause trouble. I'm in love with this area.......a hidden gem!
Pros
  • Close to ECU
  • Neighborhood safe
  • People are welcoming and friendly.
  • Choice of shopping centres
  • Large blocks - privacy from neighbours
  • Lots of parks & playgrounds
  • Choice of schools
  • Proximity to train & buses

"Great suburb to live and invest"

Heathridge is well-supported by a range of amenities. Proximity to bus and train station, schools (3 primary schools, 2 high schools), universities, parks, major shopping centres (Joondalup & Whiford) and beautiful beaches! Good block size (generally 600 sqm and over), so plenty of space for kids to play in the backyard. On top of that, the suburb is going through gentrification. With younger couples and families moving in, there are many home renovations and extensions happening. This family friendly area is transforming into a contemporary suburb. It is still affordable compared to its neighbouring suburbs on the west side of Marmion Avenue. What's more, part of Heathridge is ear-marked for sub-division. The proposal is yet to be approved but is already attracting the attention of investors and local residence who may like to get involved in property development. With the Ocean Reef marina development also in the pipeline, Heathridge is a great place to bring up a family and to invest for the future.

"Underrated established area"

My family have been in the same house in Heathridge since the late 70s. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac and there has been no issues. It has been a good mix of friendly neighbours and people getting along with their own lives.
Growing up in Heathridge, I found the plusses to be the big backyards, lots of parks, educational facilities (ECU, TAFE, Private/Public schools etc), and it's in between major commercial/shopping districts like Joondalup and Whitfords. Public transport is good and it's near some of the best beaches the northern corridor has to offer.
The area itself has gone through shifts of owner-occupied houses to rentals, but seems to be attracting a new generation of people doing up the houses. Once the proposed re-zoning goes through, the area will probably see some gentrification and a big increase in property prices.

"Our Secret Paradise"

We bought our first home in Heathridge 12yrs ago and have since turned the small 3x1 into a huge 5x2 with 2 car garage and all the mod cons you'd get from a house in Iluka or Ocean Reef (but without the huge mortgage).
We love the quiet streets and the fantastic parks.
People are always friendly when I go jogging with a kind "hello".
Lots of renovations are happening, so the area is getting that more modern looks.
For it's location between the Freeway/Train line and the beach, it's still waay under priced compared to suburbs anywhere else.
We're on the doorstep of Joondalup City and a quick train ride into the Perth CBD.

"Heathridge"

Since I moved in 2008 I have noticed a positive change. More houses are being renovated and done up. They seem to sell quickly as well. Lots of younger couples moving in and redoing gardens etc
Many dining in and out choices, also choice of Supermarkets/deli's. Bus runs throughout suburb taking you to nearby rail stations. Sadly no tavern in Heathridge.. yet.
Easy access to Marmion Ave & Freeway. Close to beach and Joondalup city. Still close to beach.

JohnS18 What are you talking about? Heathridge has never had a tavern, fuel station or chemist. I should know I have lived there 30 years and never had a problem with the crime rate you're on about.
