"Next door to Medina."
Postans is an area of land situated between Thomas and Anketell Rds. It is adjacent to the suburb of Medina and The Spectacles Wetland area. It lies in the Town of Kwinana and the main activity in the area is the Waste Treatment Plant, quarrying , the Alcoa tailings and a Dept of Agriculture research station. It is thought the area was named after George Postans who arrived as a convict in 1850 and bouth 100 acres in 1882 after his release. At that time the area was known as Caledonia.
"Otherwise known as Point Peron!"
Peron, known as Point Peron to most of us, is located on a small promentory off the Shoal Water Bay area of Rockingham. It is known to many older Perthites as a school camping ground, due to the regular excursions taken there during school years. Although, Peron is a suburb, it is not really a residential area. Instead it is a local tourist destination and with that in mind further reading about the area is probably best sought out on the tourist pages for WA or Perth. As a primer, I can say that the area is known for its protected beaches and limestone cliffs, with excellent snorkelling to be had on the reefs. Point Peron also saw some activity in WW2 with gunners and bunkers established to help protect the shores of WA. There are some ruins still remaining for the public to view. There is access (military only) to Garden Island from here, but as usual - not for the general public. Point Peron was named after French naturalist Francois Peron who was part of the 1801 expedition with Nicholas Baudin.

"Green and fresh in the south west."
Keysbrook is a small locality in the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, right near the South West Hwy. It was first established in the mid 1800s and named after Charles Key, who leased land in the area. Keysbrook became a town in 1916 and a locality in 1997. It remains mostly rural and has agricultural activities, like orchards and some lifestyle properties. the main centre nearby is Serpentine and both Armadale and Rockingham are within a medium lenght drive for other services and more extensive shopping requirements.
