Just to start the ball rolling, this site gives a fair description of the area and its' surrounds. wapedia.mobi/en/Thornlie,_Western_Australia. My son lived fairly close to there so I only have a limited knowledge other than it is an outer southern suburb of Perth, has good infrastructure,working class type suburb with big blocks and older homes but there's a number of new estates being opened out that way. It is part of the City of Gosnells. There's plenty of schools and colleges available, technical colleges, Islam college is being built there, Thornlie Christian College.A railway services the area to Perth (about 17km away). It does have a multicultural flavour but accordiing to the spiel about 75% are from English speaking backgrounds. This is a start and hope there will be more responses. Happy New Year!

Hi there, It doesn't look as though there's anyone living there or willing to give an opinion. I notice that hairdressing is listed as an occupation so I can tell you that there are at least 4 large salons in that area who advertise. There's 2 large shopping centres and smaller ones. There's also an Asian small shopping centre at Spencer Road. It is hard to recommend it when most Aussiemovers seem to want to be near the coast so that they can utilise all the sun surf and beach atmosphere. It may only be a 20 odd km trek by rail, bus or car but you would be driving through the busy highways to get there. The main railway line from Perth to Armidale runs through there and I believe it is very noisy if you happen to live near the rail line. Do you have a special reason for wanting to live in that area? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thornlie,_Western_Australia

It has historically been a tough area and surrounded by tough areas so the state high schools are, tough! Saying that you may find a good private school in there with affordable fees. If I was honest, it certianly wouldnt be my first choice of suburb.
