"A hidden gem"

Southern River is obscured by its more established neighbour, Canning Vale and the more reknown Harrisdale & Piara Waters.
Neighbourhood is friendly and safe. There are numerous parks for outdoor living and food + amenities are stone's throw away.
It's still a fairly young residential suburb with many pockets under planning and development, but certainly one that has the potential to grow nicely if done well.

"Friendly and Beautiful Neighbourhood."

Live in Bletchley Park and it is an absolutely beautiful place to live. Friendly neighbours, walking trails, lots of nature and fresh air to get you away from the bustle of the city. Homes are of high quality and there are plenty of quality schools around and coming up soon, as well as shops and other amenities.

"Come home to all this - and relax!"

Beautiful parklands and friendly neighbours. Easy access to shops, petrol stations, gyms, schools, cafes and local restaurants. Enjoy a picnic or BBQ at the park - with use of the free BBQ area. Take a stroll or a jog along the well designed pathways throughout the park. The kids will love the playground and the seating is ideal to take a book to read while the children burn up some energy. There are ducks, frogs and native birds to see and hear, all adding to the appeal of this area.
