"Lovely, and cheap established housing"

If you don't have to consider a good primary school for your child/ren, then Warnbro would be great. If you go beach side of Read then you will be even better off. In my opinion, the crime rate seems to be a little higher either side of Waikiki, but most of Warnbro is actually not too bad. My father picked Waikiki (Harrington Waters Estate), as is a great neighbourhood and Waikiki Primary School is the best in the area. I would expect the results of the students to get better and better each year, particularly in 3 years when my daughter starts going.

"Welcoming and family friendly"

Having moved to Warnbro around 4 mths ago, we have been pleasently surprised at the friendliness of the locals, the great facilities and amazing beaches.
Having 2 young children, I have found it so easy to meet people, arrange playdates and make friends, it's a very social area. I love the fact that my children can grow up in an area where being outside and living is the norm, I constantly see people at the parks, beach and just generally out exercising.

The area of Rockingham is often labelled as being full of bogans or less than desirable people, from what I can tell, it doesn't have any problems greater than any other suburb of Perth, I think before the Kwinana opened and prior to all the new developments opening and appealing to families and professionals, there may have been reason for the Shire of Rockingham to have that reputation, but so much has changed and this area will continue to attract the 'right' kind of people.

Being so close to a beautiful stretch of ocean and with more developments in the pipeline, I'm glad we brought now, as I think this area will be out reach financially for most middle income families within the next 5-10 years.

"A very diverse suburb"

There are many sides to Warnbro, but mostly positive and you can't go past the pristine beaches in this area which are great for families with kids. Warnbro gives you easy access to the freeway, or to the train station ( a quick 35 mins to perth ), as well as good shopping facilities at Warnbro, Port Kennedy, or the recently enlarged Rockingham City.

I have lived in Warnbro for the past 18 years and have loved every minute. I have moved 4 times each time closer to the wonderfull beach at warnbro, the kids love spending summer swimming in the calm sea. We have a wonderfull aquatic center, a nice shopping centre and good sporting complex near by with beach volleyball, indoor cricket, indoor netball and the lark hill sporting complex less than 5 minutes away. The train station is close by and within 35 minutes you are in perth. My son travels to uni everyday by train and it is quicker and cheaper than by car. The last drop is a geat family pub/ restaurant with great food at affordable prices. my kids go to living waters school which is brilliant, my eldest now attends uni after graduating with honours. I could not imagine living else where, i have lived in the hills and north of the river but love it more down here. Do yourself a favour and if you have the chance to move to the rockingham area do so you will not regret it.

"An Aquatic Paradise"

I have lived in and around Warnbro since 1973 and i have had the pleasure of watching it grow into one of the most desirable locations the world has to offer. Warnbro affords the best of both worlds with modern infrastructure and services combined with some of the most magnificent aquatic and marine based natural experiences found along the Western Australian coastline.

If you're like me "a fish out of water" you will love the opportunity of being able to dive off one of the many neighbouring islands, sail a yacht within the protected bays, cast a rod from a boat or off the beach and enjoy the vast stretches of white sandy beaches.

With Warnbro being located only a 30 minute train ride to Perth and within easy reach of Kwinana's world renowed industrial strip finding work is never a problem.

Warnbro offers secure property values with an average 11% return over the last 10 years. So whether you are looking to buy your first home, architecturally designed beachfront paradise or anything in between you will find what you want in Warnbro.

I found my piece of paradise.

"Hoons Boguns and a beautiful Beach"

I lived with my Family in Warnbro for 12 Months.
I have never regretted leaving. Dont be suprised to see twits doing burnouts in your Street as Warnbros hoon culture is ever present. Pacific Fair shopping centre is dreary(a match for the suburb) place.

The local schools are amongst the worst performed in Australia.....If you dont believe me have a look at the Govt education website.

P.S I still own a Home in Old Warnbro and values wont improve untill the cheap housing fades away and with it go the unemployed and the underemployed. Check back on Warnbro in about 20 years....might move back there myself then. Meanwhile it can be righty proud of its well earned ranking of 113th best suburb in Perth.

"Holiday All Year Round"

I have lived in Warnbro and the surrounding area most of my life. I have also travelled all around the world experiencing wonderful,and sometimes not so wonderful locations! Still I always marvel at how fortunate I am to live in the beautiful Warnbro dunes. Its rugged beauty never ceases to amaze me, the peacefulness, the wonderful birdlife and the fact that I can be the only person on the beach for miles, I'll never take for granted. You never have to worry about finding a carpark, or where I can sit or lie down on this amazing strech of clean, unspoilt coastline. We are so close to some of Perths top tourist attractions, Penguin Island, Point Peron and Swimming with the Dolphins. Fishing, surfing, diving and watersports are very popular activities here.The aqua jetty is an amazing recreational centre that is widely utilised. We are only a short 30 minute train ride from the Perth CBD. We have one of Perth's largest shopping centres nearby that is open all weekend during school and public holidays,it has cinemas and great cafes, everything you need under one roof. I think we have on offer an idyllic lifestyle here that suits families, singles, Proffesionals and the beach loving person who likes to feel they are on holidays all year round.

"Wonderful beachside location"

From quality beachfront living to modest family homes, Warnbro has so much to offer.With a good choice of government and private schools plenty of parkland and so close to one of Australia's best beaches.Also close to major shopping centers.In the heart of old warnbro,you can still purchase quality properties at an excellent price.

"A great place to live for anyone"

I have lived in Warnbro for the past 16 years and it is a great place to live. The beach is equal to any and usually under-utilised. The Aqua Jetty is a great gym with all new equipment and the heated pools mean that you can swim all year. There are some great restaurants and a cafe strip nearby in Rockingham where you can get a range of food from different cultures. Also the extension to the shopping centre at Rockingham City means that the shopping here, which is open 7 days per week during school holidays, is fantastic.

My only problems in living at Warnbro is that it is a bit of a trek into the city to work each day however the train has certainly eased this. Also the area has predominantly only one ethnic group and I would like it to be more multi-cultural.
