Reviews of South Lake, WA

"Great Suburb and on the up"

I have lived in many suburbs around Perth I originally move into a small duplex in south lake to save money to buy elsewhere. I quickly grew to love the suburb and have since bought a house. Everyone in the area is great and neighbourly and people are starting to spend big money to renovate their existing houses rather than move away from the suburb.

South lake had a wrap as a less than stellar suburb and but the council has been investing mass sums to redevelop the area.

"Great area"

I've lived here for years. Never had a problem. Cockburn is great (busy at times), has all I need, nice parks and restaurants.

"Good location, some people can be odd"

Its super easy to get to the city and Fremantle from South lake. It was quiet where I stayed (towards the east side of the suburb).

The only thing that massively put me off was whenever I walked to the shop I would see so many discarded needles on the foot paths.

"Bad place, bad neighbors...avoid."

We lived in South Lake for over 6yrs and couldn't wait to get out. Our neighbors to our rear were filthy bogans, and that's paying them a compliment. On one occasion my wife was abused in the IGA shopping center by an indigenous member of society. My strong advice to anyone contemplating living in this suburb is DON'T. Do your research and live elsewhere.

"Fantastic Suburb"

We are a young couple who have been living here for a year now and have had LOVED the location and have had absolutely no troubles. The Lakes Revitalisation project through the City of Cockburn will mean that the prices in South Lake will keep increasing. They are also supporting urban renewal in the area which will improve the overall appearance of the suburb.

Great for

  • Proximity to Fiona Stanley Hospital
  • Lakes Revitalisation Project underway
  • Proximity to Murdoch University
  • Leisure facilities for young, schools, play grounds
  • Proximity to cockburn central
  • Proximity to nature

Not great for

  • Houses are old(ish) and not very well groomed

"Affordable, great location, loads of amenities!"

Fantastic central location just 20kms from Perth CBD, 13kms to Fremantle and less than 5 minutes to the new Cockburn Central Shopping Centre. South Lake is a fantastic and affordable suburb with lots of amenities including:
• Two schools: South Lake Primary School and Lakeland Senior High School.
• South Lake Leisure Centre on South Lake Drive. The Centre has an eight lane heated 25m pool, outdoor leisure pool with 2 water slides(summer only), toddlers pool, spa, sauna and steam room. The Centre also has a fully equipped gym, aerobics room, community meeting room and two indoor multipurpose sports courts.
