Top New Perth Suburbs Near Rivers, Lakes and Wetlands

Building your new home near a river, lake or wetland in Perth can give many relaxing benefits. Depending on the size and shire rules tied to the lake or river, you can do many activities on the water – from swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and maybe even jumping off a jetty. Perhaps you envision yourself reading a book on the shoreline, or awakening to the sound of water birds, either way, living by the water to some (without the annoyance of beach wind and sand) is a retirement dream.

Despite the notion that living near the city is more fun and convenient, living near water and parks can be just as satisfactory, making that extra drive worthwhile.

There are quite a few rivers and lakes in Perth. The major river in Perth is called Swan River, which flows through the city of Perth, having a total area of about 121,000 km2. It has three major tributaries, the Avon River, Canning River and Helena River. While there are countless suburbs in close proximity to these major rivers as well as other lakes, we will focus on the new suburbs that have started development in recent years.
