Cannington, Western Australia

“A very accessible and affordable location”

Cannington has many great features, but out of all I believe the best is to be its proximity to the City, and the accessibility to/from the Perth CBD, as well as other major centres such as the Airport, Canning Vale and Fremantle. The major Surrounding Highways (Roe, Albany, Kenwick Link, Nicholson Rd, Leach Highway, Manning Rd) all provide great transport networks to get where ever you need within a relatively short space of time. The public transport also supports reduced travel times to/from the city with 3 train stations locally that could be used (Queens Park, Cannington & Beckenham Stations).

Although I would personally avoid the Train Line South of the River at night time, the day time safety is very adequate. Night times I would rather pay for a taxi than have the risk of being troubled by a bunch of youths. I have travelled the Armadale line at night and have had many safe trips, but there is the occasion (especially is heading out to Northbridge or CBD) where trouble can occur. There are now more train guards, so good to stay in carriages with guards, but not always available. Problematic stations I would avoid at night include Burswood, Vic Park ,Carlisle, Oats St, Cannington, Queens Park, Cannington & Beckenham. Welshpool isnt too bad, as there is not many houses close by (mostly industrial) there is rarely trouble close by.

The suburb itself features many cul-de-sacs and safe, quiet streets, especially in the boundaries of Hamilton to South to Wharf, And Albany Highway East to Sevenoaks St.

Carousel provides a wealth of shopping including clothing, electrical, convenience, food shopping, markets, sporting, gaming, department stores, food court, phone & internet, news agencies, cinemas & much much more. With Carousel providing an abundance of shoppers daily, the local surrounds also include many Commercial Shopping that is attractive to all types of people. With things like Car, Boat, Caravan, Camping Stores, Kitchen, Bathroom, Renovation, Garden, Workout Gear, Tyre Fitting, Wreckers, Gas Plumbing & Electrical Stores, Gyms, Cannington LeisurePlex, Baby Stores, Pet Stores, Pool/Spa Shops and a massive abundance of others.

Pretty much, if there is a shop you need, it is bound to be found in or around Cannington within 5km.

Overall it is a great suburb, with great rental returns for investors, with many tenants wanting to live in a location close to the city with easy access, public transport and local facilities
