"A lovely place to live"

Carramar is a lovely place to live and bring up a family, the houses are new and well kept and generally the owners take a pride in their gardens and presentation of their homes. There are exceptions but these are fairly rare. While heavy work is being done in Pinjar Rd and Joondalup Drive there is a bit of noise and dust during the day but once these upgrades are finished the result will have been worth it.
There are many well kept parks dotted around the suburb and the pavements and cycle paths are reasonably well maintained. Security is always important and statistics suggest Carramar is one of the safer suburbs around although from time to time the number of incidents does spike, generally speaking these are not the norm.
Shopping is basic, in the local centre there is a good Woolies and a number of takeaway outlets as well as a pharmacy, Gym and a medical centre, the biggest problem is that all but the Gym and takeaways are closed on Sundays, however Lakeside at Joondalup is open 7 days a week and is only 10 minutes away.
The area is also blessed with a number of good schools in the area, most within walking distance wherever you may live in Carramar.

What do you know about the primary and high schools ?


No high school yet in Carramar but the Carramar Primary School seems to have a good reputation. St Stephens in neighbouring Tapping is very well respected and Banksia Grove, next door is planning both high and primary schools on the border of Carramar and Banksia Grove. I would not recommend the schools presently operating in Banksia Grove. Dont confuse the new part of Banksia Grove with the older part with a dodgy reputation, they are very different.
