"An area of future development?"
Eglinton is a generally unpopulated area in the northern suburbs of Perth, bounded by Alkimos at the southern end and Yanchep/two Rocks in the northern areas. It extends inland almost to the Mitchell freeway and is about 40 km from the Perth CBD. This area is flagged for development as a Satellite city of Perth in much the same way as Joondalup was developed. Development of land has begun with some estates being made ready for housing. The area is expected to house up to 55000 people and be self seufficient with its own hospital, commercial and retail sector.
"An unexpected suburb."
Hazelmere is a small suburb with access to Midland for amenties and shopping. I rented here for a while and I only found it by accident driving the 'long back way' home from Midland shops one day. After going past the brickworks, all of a sudden there is a suburb. It looks and feels like little country town to me - the untidy verges and generally older houses on the 'outside' of the suburb just seem to remind me of that type of environment. But, once you get into the few inner streets you can see that there are some pretty nice houses on big blocks and it feels like a bit of country in the city because there is still a bit of open space around - soon to be filled in with houses I am sure. I was hapy to live there and would love to again - if I could be in one of those nice new houses!
