"The Place I Always Move Back To:- It Feels Like Home."

Padbury is a suburb that is easy to live in. It is located close to everything and well priced. We have Sorrento Quay Marina just down the road,also Whitfords Shopping Centre across the road. 5 minutes to the Rail,great bus service,10 minutes up the Freeway to Joondalup and all thats available there,loads of Parks for fitness for people and dogs.A great Whitfords Football /Cricket Club at McDonalds Park and 4 Primary Schools and so near to Duncraig High School, and St.Stephens in Duncraig. What more can I say I've tried moving away several times but am always drawn back.It is an area that is going through renewal and you can have the coastal lifestyle without the high prices.We live on a busy road with shops at both ends and I do not notice the traffic noise which might concern some people, I think its a matter of liking where you live.

"Overpriced"

Seriously, 3x1 for up to $550,000???? 4x2 for $600,000? you can buy a 3x1 across the road in Hillarys for a bit more than that? and you could probably buy in Kallaroo for the same price? They are much better areas than Padbury???? What a joke
dis-nou-kak

GrantCashion That may be so but the blocks in Padbury are a lot bigger and your not living in your neighbours pocket yes you might pay 550 for a 3x1 but if it's like mine you have enough room for a caravan and a boat plus 4 cars in the driveway plus I have a 6x6 shed in the back and a 11x4 metre pool and still room for my undercover area and lawn area for my kids to play in. As for the hoons and load music find me a place in perth where you don't get them

"Older, smaller, houses."

I have a friend who really likes living in Padbury, but for me, and mainly my wife who thinks all the houses in Padbury are old and small, and over pirced for what you get. You are definately more than 20 minutes away from the city, unless by train but you still have to get to the train station and find a parking spot (okay if you start work early).

  • parks and playgrounds

"Pretty Good"

If you cant afford to live in the beach side suburbs surrounding Padbury, the next best thing would be Padbury! Its close to the beach and city, and you are surrounding by nice suburbs. Its a lot better than living in Mirrabooka, Balga, Koondoola etc

"Padbury - finally, all in one"

We have bought our house here a year ago and are so happy, couldn't asked for more! great schools, close to the beach, safe, community spirit and lots of young families moving in, like us. All that with reasonably priced houses on large blocks! The best kept secret, we are here to stay. :)

"Family friendly - close to everything"

Padbury is a fantastic suburb for raising families. There are 4 Primary Schools in Padbury alone and quality high schools in neighbouring suburbs. Childcare facilities are excellent. From Padbury you can easily access the Hillarys Marina, northern beaches and the freeway for a 20 min drive to the city. There are convenient local shops in 3 different locations throughout the suburb and Whitfords shopping centre is only minutes away. Padbury has friendly neighbours and a great community spirit - including a Lions Club fair at McDonald park each year.

"Safe/quiet/Near to freeway & beach."

We have moved to south side of Padbury few months ago from Scarborough. This is one of the best places I have ever lived in till now. The place where we live is only 2 Km to freeway and around same distance to beach. The neighboures have been really friendly and helpful.
Pros
  • Near to beach & freeway
  • Takes around 20 minutes to city
  • Safe/quiet and very friendly people
Cons
  • Not happy with the broadband speed (Reason begin we are around 4.5 Km away from the exchange.).

"Great for beach, local shopping centres, easy access to transport and local restaurants are wonderful"

We have lived in Padbury for 14 years and love it. Sorrento Quay is a 5 minute drive, the schools are very good and the access with both connecting buses and trains to both Joondalup and Perth city fantastic. People are friendly.
Shopping is wonderful as we have Whitfords less than 5 minutes away, Karringyup and Joondalup just 10 minutes.
The local restaurants are fabulous - Hepburn Heights and and a the couple in Warburton are great too. A wonderful family suburb.
