"Relaxed town but catching up fast."

Harvey is a slightly inland community being 42 km from the coast and situated 140 kms south of Perth. Harvey has a laid back relaxed atmosphere. The people in this town are very friendly and helpful. Harvey is a mixture of lush green farming areas, clean unspoilt beaches, large jarrah tress, a maze of shops and galleries as well as many wineries. Harvey has all the facilities you would need including some fine medical centres with GP’s as well as allied health professionals and public hospitals. There is a choice of state, catholic and private primary and secondary schools as well as a fully equipped to TAFE Colleges etc. There is a local bus service that also acts as a school bus service that enables users to travel not only around Harvey but also into Bunbury, 50 kms away. TransWA services run to Perth regularly. There is a population which is now in excess of 5,000 residents and real estate prices, although still affordable, are on the increase, as to is the rental market with few properties for rent and also at a higher price. Harvey is still an amazing place for families with everything close at hand.
