Moving from Perth and finding paradise in Mandurah
Mandurah remains one of WA’s best locales and for good reason – every year Perth residents continue to flock to the heart of the Peel district, looking for greener and more spacious pastures. With beautiful homes, modern apartments and luxurious mansions to choose from, there is something for everyone in this attractive suburb.
Real work/life balance
If you’re looking for breathing space or a perfect place to raise your family, you might be due for a sea change.
Mandurah has the look and allure of Perth’s chic inner-city lifestyle but without the hefty price tag. In fact, Mandurah is one of the most affordable coastal suburbs to buy in (according to the REIWA), and is a convenient 40 minute drive to Perth – leaving you plenty of time to unwind, exercise or take up a new hobby after the work day is done.
As the second largest city within greater Perth, residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to retail therapy. The Mandurah Forum is the central major shopping destination, but thanks to a booming tourist industry there are plenty of delightful boutique stores to discover and hidden treasures to find.
Take a walk along the thriving foreshore or the boardwalk and you’ll have plenty of incredible restaurants and bars to choose from – even for the fussiest of eaters.
Community at heart
Mandurah is getting younger, with more families making to move to the flourishing suburb. And it’s easy to understand why – the city boasts more than 10 schools in the region, as well as extensive playgrounds, kids clubs, and after-school programs. With lots of athletics and creative youth programs on offer, there are plenty of activities for families to choose from.
The City of Mandurah prides itself on inclusivity and accessibility; there is beach matting for wheelchair access, all-terrain wheelchair hire, and accessible toilets and changerooms across beach areas and playgrounds within the city.
