"Lived there...moved out due to crime"

Lived here for 2.5 years and moved out. Noisy. Wouldn't park car on verge ( break ins) or relax with windows open.
Location to City is about the only thing going for it . Not really a neighbourly suburb.
Pros
  • Excellent Location
Cons
  • Noisy

"What a wonderful Suburb!"

Joondanna is one of the wonderful suburbs in Perth! Lived here from the Early to Mid 2000s. Lots of Park & Reserves, Primary Schools such as Mount Hawthorn, Tuart Hill & Osborne & Secondary Schools such as the Churchlands SHS & the Balcatta SHS! Given that it is in Close Proximity to the City & Lake Monger, this will also be another great option for me to live in Perth!
Pros
  • Close to the CBD.
  • Lots of Schooling Options
  • Lots of Parks
  • Excellent Location
  • Beautiful trees and gardens
Cons
  • Quiet

"Perth's hidden gem"

I have been living in Joondanna at Powell St for over 10 years and I have to say in terms of affordability, and location the property here is still a good value as a place of residence and as an investment. The main highlights of this location is the closeness to the CBD and good environment. Rolls has no idea what he is talking about because Joondanna is a very quiet area. Just go take a look and see for yourself. As long as you avoid living in Wanneroo Road and Main st then you are fine (This applies anywhere not just Joondanna)

One of my favourite aspect of this location is that I do not see any hooligans wandering around unlike certain neighbouring areas near the city such as Tuart hill, and Yokine (no offence, both are still good areas). If you can't afford to buy a good house or unit in Leederville or Mount Hawthorn, Joondanna is the next best bet. Fundamentally strong with good rental returns and low vacancy rate. Prices are still reasonable and it is likely to climb if Perth prices continue to trend upwards.
Pros
  • No hooligans
  • Fundamentally strong investment
  • Excellent Location
  • Beautiful trees and gardens
  • Peaceful

Location to city and public transport are great, but the noise and traffic are amongst the worst in greater Perth.

CityHopper1
CityHopper1 Noisy? Which street did you live on? Main Street? or backing onto Wanneroo Rd? Most parts of Joondanna are quiet.

Rolls
Rolls I used to go for works all over Joondanna, and would not have missed much street, and what I found is I was always thinking to myself that I would not want to live there as very noisy and I'm not talking about Main Street of Wanneroo Road, but the little back street which echoed the roar from the fore mentioned back streets. On top of that, there were only the odd house I liked there and priced well out of the reach of 95% of the general population. Location is good if working in the city, as just a short stroll to the train station meaning no parking problems, but you need to like where you are living and I did not like to live there for those prices.

"Peace and quiet close to the city"

Joondanna strikes the perfect balance between location and comfort. It is a short drive to Glendalough Train Station, short drive to the city, 15 minutes to Scarborough Beach, short drive to Edith Cowan University, short drive to the local shopping centre on Waneroo Rd, short drive to the cafe and restaurants on Main St, local parks surround it, several buses run through the area, yet somehow, it is so peaceful as well!
I really cant think of any negatives...you could even get by without a car due as everything you need is within a 30 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride. I left to go overseas and missed the lifestyle I had living on Stoneham Street before I'd even left. I would happily live there again if I return to Perth.
