"Salter Point - Perth's best kept secret suburb ... I guess until now ;)"

Salter Point in my view is one of Perth's best kept secret suburbs. Tightly held by those fortunate enough to have discovered it, the home turn-overs are low and likely to be an upgrade or downsize in the area. Salter Point borders on the Canning River and offers lots of stunning walks and bike rides. It's no drive-through location, which means it is quiet in terms of traffic. It's hard to imagine you are so close to the city. You'll find an array of homes from the original war service homes through to multi-million homes offering stunning views. You can enjoy every water sport imaginable, from rowing, kayaking, fishing, water skiing, boating, and jet skis. In terms of facilities, There are two local shopping centres. Letchford Centre, Salter Point and Welwyn Ave, Manning. The newly erected Manning Hub offers a state-of-the-art Library, New modern Community Hall, and meeting spaces with modern facilities, Early Learning space incorporating a toy library and playgroup, Moorditj Keila Aboriginal Group, Child Health Clinic.
There is a new seven (7) days a week Doctors Surgery, Early learning Centre, Gym, Manning IGA store, Manning Pharmacy, Manning Fresh (fruit and vegies), R&J Butchers, a newsagent, @O'Briens Clothing - offering all the best labels, hairdressers including @Salter Point Hair Design (Letchford Centre) cafes including Rakticino and a deli - Located just under 12km's from Perth CBD. There is great access to schools, government and private including Aquinas and Curtin University. The Curtin University bus services the area and there is great public transport access taking you into Elizabeth Quay in the City. ...

Sue Rowles Hi Lucka, We've personally only ever had positive experiences with ALL of the shops we visit at the Manning Shopping Centre, as have our friends and neighbours. All are small businesses providing wares and convenience and great customer service to our community. If your comment refers to the aesthetics of the shopping centre, you'll be pleased to know there are some upgrades coming to the shopping centre. If you've had a bad experience with one of the shops then I suggest maybe having a quiet word with the owner or manager of the shop in questions so that they can discuss and if at fault rectify your grievance.

"A very quiet and safe suburb few West Australians are aware of."

Lots of beautiful homes located in a "suburb cul de sac" on the river. No one enters Salter Point unless they live in the area so it is very quiet and safe for all ages especially for the very young and aged. Boutique shops, clean and classy, close to the city, cycle paths along the canning river, plenty of parks amongst million dollar properties.
Pros
  • Peaceful
  • Safe
  • Access to the river.
  • Perfect Schooling Options
  • Perfect Shopping Options
  • Very Close to Public Transport
Cons
  • No nightlife.
