"Cockburn Central (Ghetto)"

For past 15 months lived in Cockburn Central although a more accurate description would be Cockburn Ghetto. The only thing going for it is the proximity of the station. Otherwise you'll be living in a shoddy build unit for a a rental premium dictated by the station proximity. The area is the noisiest I have ever lived in which previously includes central Manchester and London. Unfortunately due to the complete absence of any building standards especially window design etc no account is taken of this.

In the evening the area is like a war zone with people screaming and shouting at each other and breaking glass. Frequently marine flares are let off at the buildings. The area seems to attract the people who ride Harleys at 1.00am with exhausts that emit 140dB at the tail end and sounds like a machine gun going off. Vandalism a major problem along with hoons. Regular high speed collisions between vehicles and buses in stoockton bend. Drunks, junkies, hoons, neardowells all part of the areas charming character.

Most nights you'll be stunk out by the toxic emissions from Cockburn Cement (I suspect they burn tyres over night). The Council claim its burning peat in the wetlands (complete BS).

If moving here invest in ear plugs and sleeping tablets.

Thank god I'm renting and can move soon. If I purchased here...........
Pros
  • Main Cockburn central train station
Cons
  • Noise, dust, air pollution
  • Shoddy low quality apartments - tomorrows ghettos
  • Vandals, hoons, junkies, drunks, WA's worst drivers

Ozbloke36 Empty What street was this on? And did you notice it was only in certain areas / streets of the suburb? Only reason I ask is Success as a suburb seems to have below the average crime rate of all Perths suburbs....

"Bobby"

Lots of break in's of recent, top and bottom end. Cars being targeted at cockburn station and gateway shopping centre. Houses are nice but it's getting a bit rough. Ive live in oz, nz and uk and travelled to over 30 countries so I feel I have a good eye for what's a nice area. Success is going down hill fast!! No cameras in the shopping centre car park = more breaks in's and atm's being blown up! Do the math for yourself.
Pros
  • Main Cockburn central train station
  • Close to beach
Cons
  • Freeway entry at shopping center is crowded
  • Power Lines

HarmanLin Appreciate you have such experience living all over the world, hope you can find a 'zero' rate of those crimes you mentioned beside Success. Please join your Neighbourhood Watch if you can help minimize that kind of things.

Ozbloke36 Empty Aye as HarmanLin said that is a good idea as Success seems to have lower than average crime rates in Perth... would be nice to keep it that way.

"Growing sharp"

Have been living in this suburb for Five years and have seen it growing. The expension of the shopping center, the construction of Mandura train line and the development of the South central shoping center has given an unbelievable boost to this area.
Excelent primary school, Transport and new Cockburn sports facilities are few to mention. The negative point is the high tension power lines which are closeby in some parts.
Pros
  • Good parks
  • Close to beach
  • Close to fremental

"Star of modern living"

Succes has developed so quickly and all the development is excelent. The majority of the development is dominated by the Richards Nobel's Magnolia garden, a respectable name in development with lots of park. All ameneties close by, with over 100 speciality stores in Cockburn Gateway Shooping city and White goosd and bulky retailer in south central across the road.
Sports facility catering for thousends of people of Cockburn are just located onthe hammond road. Two schools, daycare and a lot of open space and green park complement the young subrb.
Forgot to mentionthe quick and fast Train to the city, proximity of Foina Stainlay hospital and Closness to Murdoc university and Cogee beach is 7Km away!.

"Great suburb with lots of extras"

Have lived in the area for 7 years and love it. Easy access to city, fremantle, rockingham/mandurah and close to coogee beach for those hot days or those into boating and fishing. Heaps of local shopping with more businesses opening all the time. Great choice of schools, community centres, day care, parks and the new netball courts are very handy. Excellent public transport, lots of nice homes, clean streets and friendly people.

"A great place for young families"

It is a friendly, family neighbourhood. There is a great public school, which is really good.

It has alot of beautifully kept parks, which are great for kids .. the only down side to the parks is that they have no toilet facilities.

There is the pub, shops, train and buses. The only down side is the powerlines, which are massive and run right through the centre of the area.

"great for young families"

Although Success appears to be far down the freeway on a map, doing 100km on the freeway its actually only 10 mins from the city! It is also decently priced for mainly new houses and apartments. Gateways shopping center is average for overall shopping but its nice looking and it is getting bigger. Close enough to Garden City, Fremantle, Murdoch University. The Gate pub is handy to have a drink at but can get a bit rowdy on the weekends. Great place to invest, in the last 18 months i have lived here it has grown so much. I cant imagine what 5 years will do to this suberb.
