"Karawara - Great Value - given its central location and proximity to the City"

Karawa has got to be one of the best value areas to buy in within the City of South Perth, given its central location and proximity to the city (approximately 10 km's away). It has its own neighbourly shopping centre which includes a large Coles store and IGA along with other speciality shops at Waterford Plaza. There are oodles of cafes and restaurants along with many specialty shops. It fringes on the Collier Park Golf will be close to the soon to be constructed City of South Perth Recreational Aquatic Facility RAF', Technology Park, and Curtin University. There are great public transport links and the new Manning Road, Freeway South entrance (scheduled opening mid-2020) will cut time for commuters heading South. There is a mix of homes (some older) and includes Collier Park Estate, which offers some stunning homes. Like most areas there are some pockets that are not so good, but the community along with the City of South Perth, has put in measures to address this. If you are looking for VALUE, put this undervalued (in my opinion) suburb on your list.

"Not my favourite"

I really hate writing average reviews, but this is really an average suburb. It is a shame because it has great proximity to shops, Curtin Uni and the city but the truth it, it has many rental properties that are really unkempt. It is not filled with pretty homes and it has less than attractive people roaming the streets. However, if you are not bothered by quality but you jus want a good cheap home in a convenient location then this is the place to snap up a bargain for rent or sale.

"Inner city with smiles"

Karawara is a great place to live only ten minutes from the city, but with great safe feel. There is a big shopping centre upgraded currentl and when finished later this year will be one of best shopping centres in the greater district - two supermarkets, eating options, new tavern, and various smaller stores.
Karawara is one of the better suburbs I have lived in .

"Look out for the yobbos and dodgey shopping center....."

Karawara's shopping center car park is likely to be finished in the year 2020. You've got a long wait, folks.

eric2 Are you trying to sell a house in a surrounding suburb? - your bad review on Karawara is questionable.
I have lived in Karawara for several years never encounted these so called yobbos (Drive to carousel to see them there) and the shopping centre when finished later this year (not 2020) will be one of best shopping centres in the greater district - two supermarkets, eating options, new tavern, and various smaller stores.

heavylifting
heavylifting Karawara is a dump. Houses are old and poor quality except the few newly built ones that are under 3 years old. There are not many 2-story houses either. Being close to Curtin University is both good and bad: good = transportation, good for your teenage kids.... bad = too many students, traffic, and the huge amount of international students that live here don't speak very good english and confuse me with their questions (by the way, I am NOT a racist, I'm half Aussie half Italian and am proud of my multicultural heritage).

The shopping center is a disgrace. The parking is ridiculous, plus there's not enough shops in it. The new carpark is taking ages to get completed.

If you're looking for a house in an excellent suburb, Karawara's not it.

Kazawara The Waterford Plaza Shopping Centre is very civilised .. Great restaurants and specialty stores with two supermarkets .. Even have a fantastic dentist in the centre. Parking can be a challenge but there is always roof top parking available with an escalator
