Central locations which is accesable by being surrounded by main roads and highways. 20 km from CBD. Beechboro is the kind of place you move to and never leave. On the verge of the swan vally with many winerys and fresh produce on roadside stalls. Beechboro is only a short trip to the Malaga markets which has a variety of specialty stores.

"Good suburb for price - but depends who your neighbours are....."

Beechboro is a very multicultural suburb with some lovely pockets then some pretty average ones too. There are lots of great people who care for their suburb, homes and the people in it, but there is state housing throughout and its pretty cheap to buy into which is synonomous to high rentals. To be fair I have never lived in Beechboro per se, however I have spent a lot of time there with family who live there and they love it but they are in a great street with families, but around the corner is a different story...
Access to Perth is stop start via Beaufort Rd or Alexander Drive and the train is not real close either (Bassendean)
The local high school is Lockridge which is renouned for poor academic performance so consider paying school fees if academia is high on your agenda.
Drive through the suburb, pop into the local shops and you might feel the urge to up your budget to Noranda.....
Pros
  • Young Families
  • Good for First homebuyers
Cons
  • High Rentals incl State Housing
  • Hoons
