Hi Everyone Stumbled across this site and its fantastic - loads of good info for us.....we are in the process of obtaining sponsorship to come to Australia. Can anyone recommend any good areas to settle in perth? We would like there to be a neighbourly community so we can meet people easily! Any help will be greatly appreciated :o)

Hi Fremantle ticks the boxes for me - just can't afford to live there. Depends if you like living by the coast. Rockingham is probably more affordable and seems to have good community feel to it. Not sure about North of the River (NOR) Good Luck.

Hi and welcome..I just joined this forum too. We are heading to perth in 2 weeks. We are going to Secret Harbour. We've never been but have made lots of friends along the way and several of them have settled there...they say it's beautiful, a lovely family orientated community, right on the beach and in easy commuting distance of major cities and towns.

Never heard of secret harbour - just looked into it & it definitely looks great! Do you or any of your friends know how far and easy it is to get to central Perth? I imagine that's where our work will be Thanks for help so far xxx

I think it's about 50 to 60 mins drive... not sure about train journey times... you could probably google it to get a more definite answer

That's good! Is it a friendly place?? I'd love to set up home and get to know the neighbors for bbq's!! I've lived in this place for 3 years and I still don't know the neighbors - typical uk!!
