"Great access to local shops and public transport"

Farrington Road runs from Karel Avenue through Leeming to the Kwinana Freeway overpass (and then beyond). Leeming Forum is located on this street and has lots of excellent shops and services such as Leeming IGA, chemist, Brumbies, Chin's, Coles Express, Prima Pasta, Dominos, etc. The 515 and 516 bus routes run along Farrington Road in front of the Leeming Forum, giving extra public transport options.

Farrington Road is a single lane road with four roundabouts that keep away large truck traffic and enable free-flowing traffic at all times. The Melville Council has taken a strong position that Farrington Road remains a local single lane street, and that it not become a de-facto Roe 8. This street is pretty quiet most of the time. The road is well lit and has lovely maple-like trees along the median strip.

The south side of Farrington Road offers a variety of professional services like doctors, dentists, physios, allergists, chiros and vets. There is also a popular child care centre on the corner of Farrington Road and Casserly Drive which adds to the family friendly vibe.

"busy traffic but good area"

farrington rd is a busy rd.

great access to freeway, roe hwy and leach hwy.

great shops, great IGA.

lovely chinese resteraunts.

mostly business along sections of farrington, but still homey styled buildings. really leafy and quiet.

the kind of place where between 4 and 8pm there will always be plenty of couples, families and lone walkers, joggers and dog strollers - all of which will give you a friendly smile and hello.
