"Family Friendly Fast Developing Suburb"

I moved here over 3 months ago after having lived in Alexander Heights and so far I have enjoyed the area.
I really like the look and feel of the area.
It will be good when the new Woolworths and upgrade to Cockburn Central shopping centre is completed, and a train station is planned close by which will improve the already great public transport services.

"Love it"

I've lived here for the past 3 years after living in Kalamunda, High Wycombe and Maylands. I have to say that it compares to Kalamunda more than the other two just because it's quiet, friendly and everyone seems to be very involved in their families and activities ( Walking and riding ).

The Infrastructure has arrived and that just is the icing on the cake.

The local school has merit based selection which means that the Principal can choose his staff rather than being told they have to take someone. That means that the teachers a generally better quality because there is competition for the spot.

Crime is nil and I have never heard a speeding cars or screeching tyres.

The park lands are kept very well by the City of Cockburn and they have a roving security patrol for just that little extra.

The shopping centre has improved heaps and unlike Maylands, I never get hit up for change by some unfortunate individual looking for their next fix.
Pros
  • The new school has merit based selection so all the teachers are excellent compared to other local schools.
  • new school just opened

"not like it used to be"

moved here couple of years ago and have noticed a steady decline in suburb, starting with latenight speeders, progressing to grafitti, vandalism (new shops with glass damage), and witnessed assaults by increasing numbers of youths "hanging around". overpriced for what it is both in rental market and property sales. suburb seems to get bigger by the day.
have a good look round before making descion to move here.
Pros
  • new school just opened
  • new shop just opened
Cons
  • not as quiet as it used to be

AubinGroveFan Are we even living in the same suburb? Assaults? Graffiti? I've lived here for the past 4 years and I walk and ride around the same suburb every day and I've seen none of that. I know a lot of Police officers who live in the area and all of them love it just because it is quiet and friendly. I guess you must have some bad neighbors or something because I couldn't disagree with you more.

mj13 Sorry Dissapointed I have to agree with Aubin Grove Fan. I have a 16 year old son (and a very well behaved 16 yo) and I wonder if he goes to the shops to buy me some milk or himself a snack with some mates and you saw him would you class him as a teen that is "hanging around". Please dont judge all teens! Most of them are good kids it is the minority that are looking for trouble.
Everyone I know that lives in Aubin Grove says that they love it here for how quiet it is and how we can let our kids play out and feel very safe. That is my favourite thing about Aubin Grove!!! Oh and the wonderful new school.

deucer40 As this poster, 'dissapointed' (or should I say 'bitter') is the only poster with such extreme negative comments about Aubin Grove, it would suggest to me that this person has an agenda to discredit the suburb.
So just as 'dissapointed' has recommended to all readers, "have a good look round before making a decision to move here"... I think you'll find that everything this poster has said is untrue.
Myself, I can't relate to anything this poster has said.
See you down at the park!
Cheers,

"The best of both worlds!"

Aubin Grove is a diamond in the rough! Just off the Kwinana freeway, the premium estates like The Sanctuary are far enough away to not even know the freeway's there. The area is quiet with the estates seemingly designed to minimise through traffic. Parks and playgrounds are a PLENTY and riding from one park to another is a favourite past-time of the kids.
Infrastructure has been lacking in past years being a newish suburb, but the new primary school opens in 2011 and there's a medical centre, chemist, physiotherapist, IGA (opening soon) etc. all within walking distance. For that matter, all of this infrastructure, and more is in the next door suburb, Atwell, if you feel like a short drive. Gateway shopping centre is also only 5 minutes up the freeway which is pretty convenient.
Public transport in the area is superb. The 527 bus runs regularly through the suburb linking to the Cockburn Central train station and Gateways Shopping Centre. The train trip to the city is only 20 minutes! And the city shuttle train that starts at Cockburn Central is completely empty EVERY morning. Pick your seat!
The Kwinana cycle path is also right on your doorstep and is really smooth and quiet early in the morning. The coffee shop on the water at Deep Water Point in Mt Pleasant is only 18km away... an decent coffee ride! Or there's coffee shops up at Cockburn Central if a 5km ride is more your style!
Some of the homes in the area really have the best of both worlds. The estates are hemmed in by acerage and bush. The houses along the back of The Santuary for example on Cape Range Crescent and Grampian Crescent look out over the acerage bush to the east and there's a lot of homes built right on the parks for great views. There's not too many places in Perth, let alone Australia, where you can have the best of both worlds... living in a city suburb with all the infrastructure and conveniences that go with it, but have some of the best of the bush right on your doorstep... peace and quiet and greenery!

"A lovely suburb, close to shops and freeway."

Have lived here since the suburb was established. A lovley suburb with beautiful grounds and lakes in stage one.. lots of bush and pathways to walk around. Some people have neglected to comply with the original covenance regarding yards, driveways and colours which is disappointing that no one police's this. There are some streets that have alot of young children playing on the roads unsupervised. In desperate need of shops. Look complete but have sat empty for months waiting for someone to lease..
Easy access to freeway and Gateway Shopping Centre. A mix of ages, suit families, young and old. A primary school is under construction.

"Good place for young families to settle in."

Heaps of ongoing development & will not be suprised if it becomes Perth's cream residential areas. It seems be to dwelled by professionals and well educated young families. Lots of open spaces and parks. Not very far away from Cockburn Central shopping district. The only cons are very poor eating out & night activity places around. Also, surrounded from around by areas not so much refined.
