"Small beautiful suburb - a hidden gem"

Compared to a lot of suburbs like Cannington, Canningvale etc, this suburb is really amazing. It is close to the beautiful Coogee Beach and bustling Fremantle. Would recommend people to live here.

"Hoon suburb"

It is hard to believe that is ranked one good suburbs to live. We have been renting in two different areas of Spearwood and we always have to cope with some very aggressive and abusive behaviour from drunk or under drugs neighbours! Gerald street and Melun street are full of units with crazy, loud and violent people! We have to call police every weekend and we have small children! If you are looking for a nice place to stay forget about it

"Friendly, welcoming and quiet neighbourhood"

After moving here from Mosman Park we were slightly concerned about the neighbourhood but it turned out to be the complete opposite. People were very welcoming and actually talk to each not just say hello. I love the vicinity to Manning Park and Coggee Beach and Freo. I reckon it’s still very affordable for the good location.

alexm54 We are in Newton Street and so far it has been great for us. No encounters with drunks or drug addicts. I cant speak of other areas though. I still find its a nice suburb considering its good location and the affordability.

"Best place to live south of the river"

Prices of houses are still ok, it is central for walking, biking, bus and car . Close to Freo and the beach and we can see the ocean from our home.

"Spearwood is a hidden jam..."

I have lived here for over 18 years now. Easy to get to everything with a low crime rate and friendly neighbourhood. Coogee beach is less than 3 minutes down the road, Fremantle is 12 minutes down the road.
Murdoch station around 15 minutes. If you are working in the city you can get there in less than 40min.

"Quiet Friendly Neighbourhood"

This is one of the friendliest neighborhoods I have lived in. It is a great place to bring up children and an evening walk with the dog will always create opportunities for a chat with the neighbours along the way.

The schools have created long term friendships for the kids and it is so easy to access both Perth and Fremantle with the sea breeze always reliable and early to cool things down. A great place to live.
