"Everything you need is in Wanneroo"

Lived in Wanneroo for 20 years. Never had any problems with crime. Everything you need for a great community Is in Wanneroo . Excellent Library, great shops, top medical centre. There are beautiful parks as well as bike and walking paths along Wanneroo Lake. Plenty of schools both public and private. Great sporting clubs, and Aqua-motion is a very good complex for swimming and fitness. The suburb has developed into a very modern liveable area with middle to high income family's enjoying all the other little extras like free community concerts, festivals and the annual Wanneroo show. A fun place to live.

"Wanneroo, is a great location"

One of the things I love best about Wanneroo is the annual Wannero Show, which operates on the last weekend in November. Visit the website at http://www.wannerooshow.com

"Love it."

love the fact that it is only a 10 min drive west and you are at the beach, and a 5 min drive to the east and you are in the 'bush'. With 4 primary schools, High School, day care centres and the Shopping Centre within a 5 min drive, it is perfect for families. Many eating out options close by with Cafes, Steakhouse and Thai & Chinese restaurants all centrally located. The area is constantly updating while retaining some of it's historical beauty. I highly recommend it.

"Lovely living in Regent Waters area of Wanneroo!"

We live in the Regent Waters are of Wanneroo and find it very peaceful and safe for families. Equally there are also couples and retirees within the area. It's nice to walk around the suburb as everyone attends to their gardens and the standard of presentation is very neat. We have great neighbors and know most of them in the street. There's lots of lovely parks and playgrounds and there is a wonderful lookout over lake Joondalup with a nearby bridge over a pond with ducks & other waterbirds - which is a nice area we can walk to and get close to nature. You can cycle or walk along Scenic Drive to Rotary Park which is an amazing playground for kids with bbq facilities and lots of shade. We have easy access to Ocean Reef road and so it is a quick ride to access the freeway.

Great for

  • Regent Waters - close to freeway but also close to nature

"Affordable, quiet, great choice for first home."

Me & my partner bought our house in wanneroo last year. We're close to Wanneroo high school and our street is very quiet. We were in scarborough before we moved and although i miss being closer to the city and beach it is so much quieter here. The neighbours have either been friendly or kept to themsleves which is fine with me - no noise. There's a small park down the road from us which i can take the dogs to and the shops are close enough to walk or are a quick drive when I do my weekly shop. Eating out options aren't bad - there are a quite a few restaurant and take away choices on wanneroo road. The buses are ok but it's a bit of a drive to the city so I usually drive to edgewater train station and park there. There's always plenty of parking. The aquamotion rec centre is just down the road - I haven't been yet but have heard good things. I'd be happy to have kids here as there are plenty of places to go and parks to play at and there seems to be quite a few families with young kids around.

"Avoid like the Plague!"

Dodgy, cheap, nasty, unsafe environment. To pag123 below, it's actually a 50 minute drive to the city with no peek hour traffic. Horrible.

"Friendly neighbourhood, perfect for families"

A small suburb, perfect for young families. There is a small park within Ashby and easy access to the Rotary Park of Wanneroo a short distance away. Situated near Pinjar Road, good access to Wanneroo Road.

Currently roadworks are taking place with double lanes being made available between wanneroo road and Pinjar road. This may cause delays and may make traffic slightly noiser for close situated properties.

However, the suburb is pretty quiet and I believe that it's very safe. The cost of living here is very reasonable.

Schools nearby include Wanneroo, Tapping, Carramar and those further afield like Banksia Grove and Joondalup. There is also a few day care centres, in and around Ashby.

"Family orientated centre close to Perth"

Wanneroo is a 30 min drive north of Perth and only 15 min from Jundalup and is a commercial and industrial area with many businesses. The area offers some great sporting facilities including an indoor aquatic centre, golf course, large indoor sports stadium, as well as tennis courts, skate park and BMX tracks. Wanneroo has very good medical facilities with several medical centres a hospital and allied health professionals. There is a choice of schools with state, catholic and private schools both primary and secondary. Renting a property in Wanneroo is becoming quite expensive but the quality is very good with very modern properties for rent. Housing prices are creeping up as well but once again there is a choice of quality with newer homes available. There are good restaurants and plenty of entertainment in the area and being so close to Perth there is always plenty to do. People in this area are friendly and Wanneroo is a very family orientated suburb with a good climate and plenty of room to grow.
