Balga, Girawheen, Koondoola, Westminster, northern Nollamara, Mirrabooka. Craigie
(north of Padbury) has the Waste Water Treatment plant & many of its residents
complain of the "Craigie Pong". Moral: don't buy near a Waste Water Treatment plant
because it doesn't smell like roses and never will.

    > Joondalup - Jindalee

Good list of suburbs, but put Padbury at the bottom of the list, it's a bit dreary
and tired. As for Jindalee, I had to go look at a map for that one. Luckily it's a
new map. That suburb is way, way north. Not so good as far as transport is concerned.
The freeway doesn't go that far and neither does the train. Probably the cheapest as
far as housing but so far from anything, except for maybe a shopping centre and
cinema. Joondalup's a neat place. Lots there, almost like a mini-city. Great library
and restaurants. Lake Joondalup's up that way. Beware of living too close to a lake -
midges. Billions of them.

Joondalup would be the furthest from the beach, but still within 10 minutes drive.
Ocean Reef, Mullaloo, Kallaroo, Jindalee are all beach suburbs so they would be
within 15 minutes walk, or less than 5 minutes drive. Most people don't walk to the
beach here, if they're going to spend the day/morning/arvo at the beach. Too much
gear to bring - shade-tent/umbrella, eskie, bodyboards, towels, chairs, kids, books,
etc., etc. We're in a beach suburb and drive there if we're "going to the beach".
It's an advantage to live close to the ocean for the lovely, cooling seabreezes (aka
Fremantle Doctor).

Remember: when you buy a house in Australia, factor in the "Stamp Duty" - about 2.5%
for an average house here in W.A.

Good luck,

Helena

Mindarie's very nice. Not too many blocks left to build on. There's a small harbour
up there, with a hotel and a couple of restaurants. It's well laid out and very
pretty. Prices have shot up surprisingly for a suburb that far north, but it's
because of the additional amenities I just mentioned. Clarkson is one suburb east of
Mindarie and is an alright suburb. Haven't heard anything bad about it. Quite a bit
cheaper than Mindarie but that probably won't last.

    > what about connelly - currambine - beldon - quinns rocks

Connolly's the nicest, then Currambine, then Beldon. Quinns Rocks is a lot further
north. Don't know much about it except that it's got a reputation as being a bit
rough. Too far, imo, especially if you're working in Perth.

The best is to rent for a while and get your own impression of the place, since
everyone is different, and their budgets vary as well. Other than the
well-known problem areas, one suburb might be heaven to one person and not so
great for the other.

Good luck,

Helena

The suburbs along the rivers are the nicest - Swan and Canning Rivers. Suburbs like:
Bicton, Attadale, Alfred Cove, Ardross, Booragoon, Mt. Pleasant, Rossmoyne, Como,
Manning, etc. Also, Murdoch further south, home of the Murdoch Uni is nice as well as
some of the suburbs near it.

The south is a mix of everything: naval base, heavy industry, marshalling yards,
rural, residential, airports, etc. You have to head much further south, past
Rockingham, where you get into some very nice places to live, especially near the
coast. With the expansion of the train route south to Rockingham and Mandurah, things
should improve for most suburbs along it.

Stay away from anything east of the Naval Base and Kwinana (heavy industry area),
like Leda, Calista, Medina, Orelia, Parmelia, Hope Valley.

Northeast of that, Thornlie and Maddington are iffy.

Close to the coast, south of the river (SOR) are some so-so areas: namely Hilton
and surrounding burbs like Hamilton Hill, Samson, Coolbellup to some extent, etc.
Hilton had some pretty bad crime problems recently and had to open a Cop Shop 24/7
to deal with it.

Good luck,

Helena
