"Living in the jarrah forest..."

Mahogany Creek was named for the creek, Jayne Brook, running through jarrah forrests in the area - the early colonial settlers called it the red jarrah wood mahogany. This country feeling suburb is in the hills and lies within the Mudaring Shire on what was once called the Old York Rd. This is now Great Eastern Hwy and Mahogany Creek sit at the highest point after Greenmount Hill. The Mahogany Creek Inn is heritage listed and was originally an old colonical wayside stop, called the Prince of Wales Inn. Although it was on the original railway line, in modern times the only public transport is a bus to Midland. There are around 300 dwellings, mostly the homes of families seeking a bush retreat or country lifestyle with access to the city. The population is still quite low at around 1000, but has grown from 760 is 1991. The price of seclusion is high with million dollar prices tags and limited availability of properties. There is also limited services in the area, but these are accessible in nearby suburbs and further with a trip into Midland.
