"Best of both worlds"

I grew up in Wandi in the 1980's. With most blocks being 2ha, Wandi has lots of the benefits of places much further out of town. Many people keep horses, dogs, cats and birds. Riding clubs are based at the Wandi equestrian centre near the Wandi Hall and there are many tracks to be ridden through the "thousand acres" at the back of the equestrian centre. Other activities such as wood-working, land care, tennis, fitness-boxing and mothers groups also take place around the Wandi Hall complex. As well as the land care group, locals also volunteer in the Mandogalup Bushfire brigade. Nature reserves provide areas for bushwalking. There's room on your property for a vegie garden, fruit trees, and you can get creative with an ornamental garden. So lots of "country" benefits and yet a major shopping centre is 15 minutes away at Cockburn Gateway.Other near-by shops include Kwinana Hub, Atwell IGA and Rockingham City. Restaurants and bars are only half an hour away at Fremantle and Rockingham. The Mandurah train line provides easy access to Perth with stations at Cockburn and Kwinana, and new one opening up at Rowley Rd in the next couple of years. Wandi is a great place to grow up with lots of room to play outside, build cubbie-houses and keep pets. Hopefully block sizes won't get smaller than 2ha any time in the near future but as surrounding areas are being developed, facilities just keep getting better and better.
