"New to Port Coogee"

We moved in 4 months ago and absolutely love this area, it is so quite and peaceful as well as being safe. Many well kept parks and play grounds for kids plus walking distance to the beach and Marina with safe barricaded swimming area to keep sharks etc.. out. Currently a new shopping centre is being built that will have Woolworths and 17 retail amenities outlets, apparently with Bakery Chemists News agent and small cafe's and retail stores right next to the Marina and water areas.

Coogee beach is amazing and we now prefer it to the northern beaches as it is protected by garden island it does not have any waves and in fact is like a lake in the mornings, much more pleasurable to swim at as there is not rip/currents or waves to contend with. Water is crystal clear and beautiful radiant blue.

Many new quality 2 story homes and luxurious apartment buildings constantly being built even when a lot of other areas in Perth have stalled or stopped building indicating it is a high demand area.

With Large established trees and manicured verge gardens and stunning architectural house builds this area has a aura of successful residents who pride the place that they live in. My wife and I are happy to never leave this area.

"Holiday life every day - coastal lifestyle under 30 minutes from Perth CBD"

I've lived in Coogee for about 6 months, having lived in some great suburbs (Wembley, Manly NSW, Hunters Hill NSW) - and it takes the lifestyle award. On our second day our neighbour passed 2 live crayfish over the fence, we went for a run and jump off the wharf the following day and almost landed on a great big seal. 8km square of parkland on the beach, and a pleasant 30 minute coastal cycle to Fremantle. Traffic to the city is generally good - about 25 to 30 minutes, and the local primary school is excellent. The only opportunity is eating out and shopping, this should improve with major facilities planned in the Port Coogee marina by 2014.
