"Ideal centre away from it all yet close enough."

Kalamunda can be found east of Perth about 25 kms away from the CBD and encompasses a large shire with over 50,000 residents scattered over several towns. There is a state forest here and is a beautiful spot. The town its self boasts everything you could need with good medical centres with GP’s and allied health professionals, and a well equipped district hospital. There are some good shopping facilities with supermarkets as well as specialty shops, convenience stores, banks, chemists etc. Kalamunda has numerous sporting fields for cricket, football hockey etc and indoor recreation centres that cater for sports such as netball, basketball, gymnastics and group fitness. There is also a swimming pool and golf courses scattered around the area. Kalamunda has primary and secondary schools both state and private as well as preschools and daycare centres. As Kalamunda is close to Perth and all facilities of a large city, property prices tend to be higher than in many regional centres and prices are now starting to climb to match those of many eastern centres. Rentals too are on the increase but still affordable especially is you are moving from one of the eastern states Of course bargains are always there to be had.
