"Quiet Friendly Neighbourhood"

This is one of the friendliest neighborhoods I have lived in. It is a great place to bring up children and an evening walk with the dog will always create opportunities for a chat with the neighbours along the way.

The schools have created long term friendships for the kids and it is so easy to access both Perth and Fremantle with the sea breeze always reliable and early to cool things down. A great place to live.
