"Pretty good if you are prepared to wait"

First of all, Caversham people are extremely social people, there are a lot of nationalities here, specially a lot of Indian. Some people might see this concentration as bad, but I can assure you it is very good as they are all hard working middle class people. Coles has been built and they are looking for build the transport hub on Marshall road so lord street will become a feeder for all the other suburbs north of here. This means buses will come every 10 minutes. Transport to Caversham now is a shocker but this will change overnight once the full lord street extension takes place. They are now building a child care and a doctors office. There are heaps of parks, basketball courts, whiteman park. The average family size in Caversham is 3.1 so there are heaps of kids. The neighbours I have are the best. The liberals canned the new school but the current Caversham school is over full so it won't be long.

The football club is about 40% complete and will be done soon. There will also be an overpass to Dayton in time over reid highway. There are talks of a high school at Brabham. Caversham is about 50% full, some of the houses here are mansions and some are very modest. They are also looking to build apartments next to the shopping centre.
Pros
  • great neighbours
  • social
  • Great for families with kids/teens
  • PARKS/GREENERY/WINERIES GALORE!!!
Cons
  • BOGANS
  • Transport is very bad, buses every half hour, during rush hour!

"Might as well live in the country"

There is nothing in caversham. We live in the new estates and thats all that is to caversham is the houses. There are no local shops, school, train lines, gyms, pub, bars etc. Yes it is in the swan valley area but it is no consolation. Coles is apparently opening soon. School was also being built school and seen on the news it is now cancelled. There is no community here at all, and lots of break ins. All up, i wish we did not buy a house here.
Cons
  • Bad Transport
  • No community life
  • No local shops. No shops.

"Community spirit is key :)"

The small town of Caversham, .close to shops, schools, parks, but best of all...walking distance from all the wineries (Swan Valley), So close to suburbia, though on the doorstep to the tranquility of the Swan Valley. Great for young and middle aged families, walking distance to bus stops etc, whilst also ideal for retirees and singles.
If you ask me, I've lived in Caversham for most of my young life, to be completely honest, there have been some less than great times, though the positives far outweigh anything else!
Take my advice...move to Caversham...enjoy...and thats it :)
Pros
  • Great for families with kids/teens
  • Close to amenities, shops, recreational activities
  • PARKS/GREENERY/WINERIES GALORE!!!
Cons
  • Some un-groomed gardens (residents)
  • Rather close to "chook farm" = sometimes causes slight smell in warmer months
