Mosman Park

"Comfortable"

I grew up in Mosman Park in the 80s & 90s and lived there on and off over 10 years. It has no cafes or hipster type shops if that's what you are looking for. It's a solid, family suburb for people who want lifestyle and simplicity without the hustle and bustle. It's awesome for kids with parks everywhere, the river is awesome to walk to.

The downside, the shops - at least they upgraded coles, some of the blocks of flats do have dodgy people, but I have lived in some off Victoria Street and Murray Street and I loved both. The multicultural aspect of Mosman Park is to me one of the positive changes I have seen over the years.

There's a great new kebab shop in the centre and the butchers are awesome and there's some great restaurants up the top end of Wellington St near Manning Road, you should try them out. If I could afford to live there as a resident I would, I love the fact that Freo is close and the train line is there.

Great for

  • Beautiful views of the river
  • Clean and Green
  • Transport access.

Not great for

  • Some dodgy areas
  • Very expensive

Thornlie

"A hidden secret"

We're been living here 2 years and renovating our house. We live in the original Thornlie when it was first built and we have some excellent neighbours. Thornlie Square is short walk, as is the train station and Spencer Village. We're a short drive to Cannington, Maddington, Armadale shopping precincts. I have a choice of commuting to work either from Thornlie or Kenwick train stations.

The only negative would be the train stations at night.

The main reasons for buying in the area was getting a house on a large block within 20kms of the city without the huge price tag and for less than $350,000 and it's an established suburb and not a dustbowl. I have access to ADSL2+, walking to shops and public transport. I didn't have to move to the outter edge of the city to have an affordable mortgage.

Great for

  • Quiet
  • Parks
  • Good value for money
  • Transport

Not great for

  • Low aircraft sometimes
