Baldivis Suburb Profile

A look at the Baldivis Suburb Profile.

Baldivis is a semi-rural residential suburb that is 46km south of the Perth CBD and 11km southeast of the regional centre of Rockingham. Its size is approximately 115sqm and population has grown from 5,957 in 2006 to 15,875 in 2011, showing a population growth of 166%.

The origin of its name comes from settlers in the area who were attracted to the region by the 1920s Group Settlement Scheme. The settlers boarded three ships which travelled to Western Australia in 1922 within six weeks of each other. These ships were called BALranald, Dlogenes and JerVIS Bay, and when the names emerged together, they became Baldivis.

Land in the western portion of Baldivis was zoned for urban de­velopment in the 1990s, and it’s progressed fast since then for residential. The very first residential estate developed in the suburb was Settlers Hills by Stockland.

There are plentiful of housing estates emerging within the suburb, such as Tuart Ridge, Settlers Hills, The Rivergums, Baldivis Central, Baldivis North, Evermore Heights, The Ridge, The Chase, Highbury Park, Heritage Park, The Dales, Avalon, Woodleigh Grove and Sherwood.
