Looking to Build? See Which Perth Suburb May Suit You

Are you looking to build but can’t quite decide which suburb will suit you? We help narrow down the choices with these top 3 lifestyle locations – Coastal, Semi-Rural and Established.

Looking south along the beach at Alkimos, a master-planned coastal community north of Perth.


  • Alkimos A coastal suburb 42km north-northwest of Perth, with direct beach access. There is a future coastal village centre in the works with a four-hectare Waterfront Park close to completion. There is a shopping precinct and a new shopping centre including a Woolworths that recently opened. As a popular tourist destination, Alkimos offers beach side accommodation and stunning views year round.
  • Yanchep – An outer coastal suburb, 56km north of Perth. Home to Yanchep National Park and the abandoned Altantis Marine Park. It is a semi-rural suburb with beach access, with plenty of western grey Kangaroos that can be seen early and late in the day.
  • Golden Bay – An outer southern coastal suburb, located within the City of Rockingham. It is right next to Secret Harbour, and here in Golden Bay you will find a friendly, coastal lifestyle with beautiful parks and a new school at your doorstep.

  • Baldivis – A semi-rural suburb 46km south of Perth and 11km southeast of Rockingham. There are many housing estates in the area, with the western half of Baldivis composed of occasional wetlands, as well as many trees, landscaped parks and country air.  Also close to the vibrant Baldivis town centre.
  • Caversham – A scenic semi-rural suburb located in the City of Swan, approximately a 40 minute drive from Perth. The suburb contains many wineries and the renowned Caversham Wildlife Park, where you can get up close and personal with some tamed kangaroos (as well as see wild kangaroos out and about in the area). Sitting on the doorstep of the picturesque Swan Valley, there are many wineries, country gardens, microbreweries, local food, farmers markets and more in the region and surrounding areas.
  • Byford – A  south-eastern suburb only 33km from Perth CBD and 15 minutes from the Kwinana Freeway. Situated at the base of the Darling Scarp, Byford offers the perfect balance of a tranquil lifestyle while still being close to the Byford Town Centre, schools, shopping centres, transport and medical services.
Piara Waters
Housing is set alongside natural bushland in Piara Waters, south of Perth.
