Just 35 minutes from Perth and a short drive to the pristine beaches of the Rockingham coast, Baldivis provides the ideal mix of coastal living and suburban peace with the convenience of inner-city amenities. Baldivis is the ideal suburb for growing families with a number of schools, shops and recreational areas for all ages.
Transport is easy with the Kwinana freeway running direct to Perth, and the newly constructed Mandurah rail line connecting Baldivis to Perth and Mandurah city centres on a short train ride. With a major regional hospital nearby as well as the lively cafes, shops and entertainment in Rockingham, everything you need is close by.
Recreation for the whole family is plentiful in the area with a number of sporting facilities and teams including cricket and football (soccer and Australian Rules) open to adults and kids. There are also a number of nature reserves and walking trails, such as the Settlers Hills Tree Walk, which leads you through a number of mature Tuart trees, some over 100 years old, which have been retained in the developed area.
Baldivis is home to a number of primary schools as well as Tranby College, a private school for K-12. There are also other primary and secondary schools in neighbouring suburbs.
A variety of residential developments are currently underway in Baldivis, the major of which is Stockland's popular Settlers Hills estate which has attracted a large number of ex-pats, particularly from the UK, for over 12 years.
A relaxed family oriented suburb with a feeling of safety, Baldivis is the perfect place for those who prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life, whilst maintaining the convenience of proximity to all the amenities you need.
