Suburb set to benefit from surrounding development

Tuesday, 3rd Mar 2015

Cockburn_stn2This overlooked suburb is ideally located to leverage off a number of ongoing development and revitalisation initiatives in its surrounding areas.

Bibra Lake is conveniently located being just several kilometres from a number of major shopping, entertainment and employment precincts, including Fremantle and the North Coogee Marina to the west, Cockburn Gateway Shopping City to the south and the Murdoch Activity Centre to the north.

Furthermore, the Kwinana Freeway lies across the suburb’s eastern border, which makes Perth CBD, and many other parts of the metropolitan area, easily accessible.

Bibra Lake is mostly low-density residential structures with more than 90% of dwellings listed as houses.

Located within the City of Cockburn and 15 kilometres south of the Perth CBD, the suburb has a population of about 6,000 residents with a median age of 39 years.

Bibra Lake’s value lies in the development occurring in its surrounding suburbs including major residential and commercial land development in Coogee, continued redevelopment of the Cockburn Gateway Shopping City and the recent completion and ongoing commissioning of the Fiona Stanley Hospital and the Murdoch Activity Centre (MAC).

Neighbouring suburbs include North Lake, Coolbellup, Spearwood, Yangebup and South Lake.

As well as low-density residential housing, Bibra Lake also contains an extensive light industrial area, a portion of the Beeliar Regional Park and a large part of the Bibra Lake Reserve.

The light industrial area is located on the south-western side of the suburb and takes up a large portion of the suburb, while the Western Power substation is in the south-east pocket.

Containing the light industrial area and in close proximity to the MAC there are a variety of job opportunities in the immediate area.

School facilities include Bibra Lake Primary School, Perth Waldorf School and good access to Murdoch University.

As well as Cockburn Gateway Shopping City, there is also Phoenix Shopping Centre in Spearwood and the Lakes Shopping Centre on the border with South Lake.

Bibra Lake boasts good accessibility bordering the Kwinana Freeway and Stock Road and is split by North Lake Road, which connects to South Street and Beeliar Drive.
