Hi We are coming to Perth for a rekkie in April 10. I am liking the look of Mandurah. My husband is a fire alarm engineer, does anyone know of any companis in that area? We have 3 children aged 11,8 and 4. What are the schools like? Would love to meet up with families in this area when we come over.

Hi, we have the usual multinationals such as Tyco (wormald) and Chubb plus a few locals. I think chubb are in Jandakot and Bunbury, Wormald are also in Bunbury and Rivervale (east perth metro). There are a few locals in Malaga and Osborne Park (both north of river). From Mandurah the closest would be Jandakot and for the Malaga / Osborne Park /Bunbury it will be about the same travel time i would guess at about 1.5 hours each way (using google maps timing). Can't help with schools etc as we live north of perth.

mandurah has its charm, but if you look at the rivers and inlets around it, you'll realise that mossies can be a problem, so just be careful of the attraction of being near a river/lake...the oceanside is ok as the seabreeze helps keep the flies/mossies at bay. the downside is that the salt corrodes outdoor light fittings, roofs etc. DON't let this put you off, as its a zillion times better here than the uk...you just need to be aware, so you don't become a whinging Pom !!
