Kingsley ticks a lot of boxes for many migrants - especially those with young kids: It's not too expensive - median price is a little above the average for Perth and that represents pretty good value considering Kingsley is just 16km from the CBD and only 5 or 6km from the beach. There is a variety of housing, ranging from smaller 3x1's (3 bedroom, 1 bathroom) duplexes or villas, to big double-storey houses. There's also a fair bit of retirement housing around. There are plenty of primary schools in and around the suburb and a very good state high school nearby in Woodvale. Great access into Perth - there are freeway onramps AND railway stations at both the north-west (Whitfords Ave) and South-West (Hepburn Ave) corners of the suburb. A couple of local shopping centres - a very small one at Moolanda Boulevard and a bigger (and popular) centre on Kingsley Drive with an IGA supermarket plus the Kingsley Tavern and a well-used Dome Cafe. Lots of play-parks in the suburb, plus an area of natural bushland called Shepherds Bush Reserve. There's also Lake Goollelal on the Eastern border, a great place for walking or cycling.
