"Out suburbs"

Recently sold after living in Tapping for 7 years. I noticed over the past 18 months the area starting to feel a little unsafe. From neighbours houses being broken into, to loud house parties. It's quite a shame really. Teenagers are stating to roam the streets on weekend nights as there is not much to do for them. Serviced by only 1 Transperth bus route, it can be a bit of a pain to get anywhere via public transport. During morning peak will take you around an hour and 20 minutes to get to Perth CBD by car. This is why I ended up moving out of the area.
Pros
  • Parks
  • pets friendly
Cons
  • Nothing to do for teenages
  • Only 1 bus service
  • So far that no one will come

"Fantastic Tucked Away Suburb"

My partner and I didn't even know Tapping existed and we have lived in Perth for most of our lives. We drove up there to check out a potential property and were astounded at what we found. Joondalup is a thriving metropolis in its own right, and Tapping is a great tucked away, quiet, suburb not too far from all the action. From our house there are eight schools, three child care centres, a shopping centre, three parks (one directly across from us which is the size of a football field) and the street we live on is quiet to boot. We couldn't be happier with the area, the neighbours or anything else. Plus, there is hardly any crime. I think Tapping is the perfect suburb for families, professional couples and people looking to retire. There's no need to even go to the city unless you work there, and if you do it's only about 40-45 minutes straight down the freeway. We used to live in Success and it takes just as long from there even though Success is closer to the city, probably because the freeway North of the River is so much bigger and there are only 2 ways to get into the city from South and they both involve crossing small bridges. Tapping is great and I would recommend it to anyone.

"Great view of Lake Joondalup, Niegbourly spirit."

Close to the shops at Joondalup, Droves Fresh Market place, Caramar and Wanneroo. Some good restaurants are starting to pop up. We really like the relaxed atmosphere and friendly neighborhood. 5 km to Joondalup which has envy thing you need, from good shopping to all services.

With many good schools I find this the perfect place to raise a family.

"Great if you can't afford anything better."

Rented here when we first moved to Perth. Terrible place, takes almost an hour and half to drive into the city during peak hour. Need to drive everywhere to get to anything. Houses are all cheap macmansions. Sure it's nice for familes now, but what about when the kids grow up... there is nothing for them to do except burn outs and parties.
Pros
  • Parks
Cons
  • So far that no one will come
  • Nice jungle for your pets to roam around
  • No traffic as to far for traffic

"Tapping. Why would you live here?"

Sure, it's almost north of Broome, has nothing to offer except a sea of cheap mcmansions and brick boxes.

But on the plus side, it's so far from Perth you only need to come here if you live here. Keeps out the people with jobs, allowing the rest to live on the dole nicely.
