"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.
Pros
  • 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
Cons
  • 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:

• 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.
