"A world away in the bush but so close to everything you need!"

Lots of great outdoor things to do, the parks and facilities are great, cater for all ages of children and people in the town. The people at the shops are really friendly and helpful and welcoming to new residents. the post office and newsagency is really well stocked and the staff are lovely. Out the front there is a great space to sit and say hello to other people!! there is a pub, local supermarket that also has a bottleshop and gifts, takeaways shop and butcher. I like living in Chidlow because it has all the things you need in the town, but not overrun with too much development. the drive to Mundaring, Midland and Perth I find is not too bad for the mornings, helps the Great Eastern Hwy is right there, run home sometimes a bit slow up Greenmount Hill. OVERALL I give Chidlow a big thumbs up

"Country Living close to the city."

Chidlow is a quaint, friendly village with access to the Heritage Trail and the home of Lake Leschanaultia, one of the most beautiful natural environments close to Perth. It is a sporting 'hub', with horse events, cycling events, motor cross, t-ball and football. It also facilitates the Kep Track Marathon and Lake Leschanaultia hosts triathlons, dog-sledding and good old camping & canoeing. Country living so close to the city provides an ideal opportunity for those of us who love the outdoor lifestyle but require the proximity of the city for work.
