"Healthy, Wealthy and Wise in Rossmoyne"

Staying in Rossmoyne has kept me fit over the years. There is something for everyone. We have the tennis and lawn bowls club at Central Rd. The Rossmoyne Yoga Centre holds regular classes. Walks and cycling along the river are popular choices. You could also do a bit of canoeing on a nice day and there are also playgrounds for kids at the foreshore. Gyms for both adults and kids are closeby in neighbouring suburbs. Riverton Leisureplex along High Rd has heated indoor pools, fully equipped gym and fitness classes. Southern Crossfit, located in Willetton, will really challenge you and improve your fitness levels.
Rossmoyne has many family sized blocks so you would have a decent backyard for the kids. You could easily fit a pool and lawn space. Many blocks in the other river suburbs like Mt Pleasant, Salter Point and Shelley have been subdivided so the lots are getting smaller. Rossmoyne has a few subdivisions but not many.
The schools in Rossmoyne are highly regarded and encourages walking to school. I see lots of kids walk everyday and the overhead bridge over Leach Hwy makes it easy for high school kids to cross safely to their school.
The local shops, post office, restaurants and IGA are centrally located in the heart of Rossmoyne. Also easy to get to by foot. Highly recommend this suburb to those who want to have a well balanced lifestyle.

"Highly Desired Riverside Suburb!"

I have lived in many suburbs within 15km of Perth and I consider Rossmoyne to be the most ideal to raise my family. We love living here and intend to stay put until the kids move out. It ticks all the right boxes for us. Majority of the lots are full sized (about 850m2) which is becoming quite rare even in new suburbs. We enjoy being and getting the kids active by walking or cycling along the river and to school. The local schools are very reputable (Rossmoyne High is consistently a top performing public school) which is often enough reason for parents to want to relocate within the school's local intake zone. Rossmoyne is in a very handy location being close to the City, Fremantle and the Perth airports. It has good transport links (Leach Highway and the Freeway), an easy access to public transport (regular buses to Bull Creek train station to go to the city), top class medical facilities nearby (St John of God Murdoch and the new Fiona Stanley Hospital) as well as many shopping areas a short drive away (Garden City, Carousel, Riverton Forum etc). In comparison to the other suburbs I've lived in (3 of which are riverside suburbs), it's very peaceful and safe here for kids and there's very little local street traffic. However, traffic noise could be an issue if you live close to Leach Highway. Like any riverside or lakeside suburbs, mosquitos are sometimes a problem when bringing the kids for a walk or to play at the foreshore parks in the evenings. House prices in Rossmoyne are not too far out of reach compared to other riverside suburbs in Perth. It also holds its values well. Most Rossmoyne residents tend not to move away because it's hard to find any reason to. Big blocks, child friendly, great schools, friendly neighbours, beautiful houses, river lifestyle and close to everything all make Rossmoyne a highly desired suburb!
Pros
  • Big family sized blocks
  • Top public schools
  • Low local traffic
Cons
  • Mosquitos in the evening
  • Not many houses for sale (for buyers)

My dream place to live. I pass this beautiful, riverside suburb every morning on my commute and long to live on one of it's water access properties. With a high performing state school, close proximity to the CBD and Garden City shopping Center. This is the the ideal location.
