Reviews of Tapping, WA

27th January 2022

"AMAZING!!!!"

I came to WA to find our perfect family location to start fresh.
I searched from Rockingham to Yanchep and Tapping was it!!
Beautiful homes, established area, green lawns, new houses but not brand new, parks everywhere, incredible welcoming schools and lovely people.
But the weather and outlook of the area is just unexplainable.
Can not recommend high enough!!

"Tapping the place to live when you got family"

Not sure where to start. Really love living here. Close to schools. Shops are all in near reach and we got a big choice of where to go.
Its clean and very well looked after. We feel save to raise children here without having to worry. Fantastic neighbours...cant have wished for more.

"So much choice to hand"

Just minutes from the new Banksia Grove shops, which have a fabulous selection of new shops, including an Aldi. Then there's Carramar shops also within walking distance with the Duke pub.
Drovers farmers market is only minutes away, with an ndependent butcher and grocery store. The botanical gardens, beautiful walks and cycleways around Lake Joondalup. Joondalup shopping mall and railway station are minutes away. And a fantastic choice of schools, including the high ranking St. Stephens school.
To boot, the house prices are reasonable and there's a nice community feel where house owners take great pride. Tapping is also very safe, ranking in the top 10 safest suburbs in Perth.

"Out suburbs"

Recently sold after living in Tapping for 7 years. I noticed over the past 18 months the area starting to feel a little unsafe. From neighbours houses being broken into, to loud house parties. It's quite a shame really. Teenagers are stating to roam the streets on weekend nights as there is not much to do for them. Serviced by only 1 Transperth bus route, it can be a bit of a pain to get anywhere via public transport. During morning peak will take you around an hour and 20 minutes to get to Perth CBD by car. This is why I ended up moving out of the area.

Great for

  • Parks
  • Pets friendly

Not great for

  • Nothing to do for teenages
  • Only 1 bus service
  • So far that no one will come

"Fantastic Tucked Away Suburb"

My partner and I didn't even know Tapping existed and we have lived in Perth for most of our lives. We drove up there to check out a potential property and were astounded at what we found. Joondalup is a thriving metropolis in its own right, and Tapping is a great tucked away, quiet, suburb not too far from all the action. From our house there are eight schools, three child care centres, a shopping centre, three parks (one directly across from us which is the size of a football field) and the street we live on is quiet to boot. We couldn't be happier with the area, the neighbours or anything else. Plus, there is hardly any crime. I think Tapping is the perfect suburb for families, professional couples and people looking to retire. There's no need to even go to the city unless you work there, and if you do it's only about 40-45 minutes straight down the freeway. We used to live in Success and it takes just as long from there even though Success is closer to the city, probably because the freeway North of the River is so much bigger and there are only 2 ways to get into the city from South and they both involve crossing small bridges. Tapping is great and I would recommend it to anyone.

"Great view of Lake Joondalup, Niegbourly spirit."

Close to the shops at Joondalup, Droves Fresh Market place, Caramar and Wanneroo. Some good restaurants are starting to pop up. We really like the relaxed atmosphere and friendly neighborhood. 5 km to Joondalup which has envy thing you need, from good shopping to all services.

With many good schools I find this the perfect place to raise a family.

Both other tapping schools have good names. I work as an educational consultant and know all schools and would be happy to send my children to any of them.
