Just 36 minutes south of Perth, Wellard is home to vibrant communities, new schools, shops, parks and adventure playgrounds. The area is alive, growing, and continuing to develop its own sense of place. Nestled in the southern corner is Fairhaven, the ideal place for families and first homebuyers to make a fresh start and enjoy all that Wellard has to offer, including the neighbouring nature reserve.
Yolk Property Group specifically chose this site for its walkable catchment to schools and district open spaces. With everything within walking distance, residents are encourage to walk the neighbourhood, get to know neighbours, and help grow the sense of community.
Take a short walk and you’re at some of WA’s most exciting new parks and playgrounds. Just 140m from your doorstep is the new sporting grounds, primary school and more. It’s another addition to Wellard’s growing number of green open space designed for public use. Run, walk, fly a kite or just roll out a picnic rug and relax, there’s plenty of options around here.
Along with huge green public open space, Wellard is home to more than 400 hectares of nature reserve. Yours to explore and discover, forever. That’s right, forever. The government’s Bush Forever policy protects these natural beauties from ever being developed.
Right next door to Fairhaven Estate is the best of them all, the A Class Leda Nature Reserve. Cross the road and immerse yourself in nature. Let the kids run wild, explore trails, climb trees, admire wildflowers and spot native animals. It’s all here to discover.
To improve the flow of nature on site, bio swales will be installed in the streets and parks to ensure rainfall replenishes the local groundwater catchment instead of being disposed offsite.
As Western Australia’s first transit-orientated village, Wellard is designed to make using public transport a breeze. Relax in the train while avoiding peak hour traffic and you could be in Perth CBD within 35 minutes. By road or rail, you’re just 20 minutes from Mandurah. Plus, with well designed connecting roads, accessing the freeway to head further north or south is quick and easier.
Wellard Square is the area’s newest shopping centre. Just a 6 minute drive from Fairhaven you’ll find cafes, restaurants, a bakery, retail stores and a Woolworth’s supermarket. For those searching for a nice family outing, the foreshore cafe strips of Mandurah and Rockingham have plenty of good food and fresh coffee on offer.
