"Awesome suburb!"

Ferndale is a great suburb to live in, it is quiet, clean and feels like a really safe neighbourhood. It is only a few minutes from the westfield carousel mall or riverton forum mall if you need to go shopping and it's not too far to drive to perth cbd. It has excellent primary schools, clean and beautiful parks for the kids to play at and good coffee shops, restaurants etc are only a stones throw away. It's an awesome suburb, we won't be leaving anytime soon!

"Magic escape from the city"

The canning river reserve is absolutely magic, the city just disappears, invisible to the eye as the wildlife around the river makes itself known. Ducks, Darters, Spoonbills, Coots and a host of other waterbirds make the river their home. Make sure to spend some time canoeing along the river and keep a look out for the nests of the waterbirds that are in the trees along the edge.

A short walk to Carousel at the east and Riverton Forum at the western side of the suburb, means there is plenty of choice for shopping and eating.

A small suburb that is missed by many and enjoyed by the few fortunate to have found it.

"affordable to rent and buy, good resale value, if you do up your house to suit modern tastes"

Close to city only 10kms, 5 minutes drive to Vic Park for excellent food, pubs and shopping. Ferndale is convenient to have Carousel, Riverton Forum and lots and lots of shops along Albany Hwy. Cons, is that Albany Highway is busy on peak traffic....but there is always High Road. Good access to busses and train station. Close to Roe Hwy and not too far from Freeway. Lot's of parkland and river for recreation...etc...Although I would like to see more off leash, better quality parkland for dogs.
