A first-home buyer's dream!

Baldivis, 46 kilometres south of Perth’s CBD, exemplifies the best of Australian suburbia. Anyone may understand why the area is fast increasing and why this suburb has gained a particularly youthful vibe after strolling through the well-kept streets of contemporary houses to one of the area’s magnificent beaches. This ever-growing pocket is the ideal place to raise a family, thanks to a plethora of nearby schools, shops, and infrastructure. There are several estates in the suburb, including Tuart Ridge, Settlers Hills, Settlers Townside, The Rivergums, Baldivis Central, Baldivis North, Baldivis Gardens, The Chimes, Brightwood, Evermore Heights, The Ridge, The Chase, Highbury Park, Heritage Park, The Dales, Avalon, Woodleigh Grove, Sherwood, and Parkland Heights.


Baldivis is served by Transperth 564 bus route, which departs from Warnbro Train Station. During business hours, this route serves the Baldivis Town Centre, passing through Settlers Hills via Arpenteur Drive, Evermore Heights, The Ridge, and terminating in The Dales (Smirk Road). The Rivergums and Heritage Park are served by Route 567. It also connects the Baldivis hamlet to the Baldivis Town Centre with a frequent service.

Both routes run seven days a week, every 30 minutes during off-peak hours and every 10 minutes during peak hours. Baldivis Central, as well as the newly developed Town Side estate and Retirement village, are served by Route 568. The newly created Baldivis Quarter is served by Route 565.

Baldivis is served by the Kwinana Freeway, which connects Perth and Bunbury. Baldivis is connected to the western suburbs of Rockingham and Warnbro by Safety Bay Road. Bicycle access to Perth is provided by the Kwinana Freeway’s main shared route.


Baldivis has eleven schools, with more set to launch in the near future:

  • Baldivis Primary School is a government school that began as a “bush school” in 1924 and relocated to its current location near Fifty Road in 1978. A plaque on a big granite boulder on Doghill Road, about 2 km from the intersection of St Albans Road, marks the location of the old Baldivis School.
  • Tranby College, a private school for K-12 pupils run by the Uniting Church, first opened its doors in 1997.
  • Settlers Primary School is a government school that opened in 2005 and is located just across the street from Tranby College.
  • On Mandurah Road, John Calvin Primary School is located.
  • Makybe Rise Primary School, located on Makybe Drive in the Tuart Ridge community, first opened its doors in 2012.

The primary shopping facilities in Baldivis are found in the Baldivis Town Centre, which is located on Settlers Avenue and includes the Stockland-owned Baldivis Shopping Centre. Extensions constructed in 2015 added a Food Court/Restaurant area, more parking spaces, a Kmart, and a Woolworths to the existing centre.

The Baldivis Shopping Centre is conveniently located on Settler’s Avenue and offers a diverse range of shopping options. Baldivis inhabitants don’t have to drive far to find a wide choice of services and amenities, including banks, supermarkets, gyms, hairdressers, pharmacies, and food outlets. All accessibility needs are met at the centre.

Wow, Baldivis is a great place to live

Baldivis attracts a younger audience as a rising suburb with a relaxing beach ambiance and an easy commute to the metropolis. Baldivis offers a diverse range of family-friendly experiences and activities. The ‘Baldivis Children’s Forest’ is a relaxing bushwalking place with plenty of educational tools for kids interested in learning about local fauna. When the weather warms up, the centrally located ‘Perth Aqua Park’ offers an inflatable obstacle course that is suitable for people of all ages. Baldivis, like the rest of the west coast, benefits from the abundance of natural resources. Stroll, cycle, or swim along the beautiful Waikiki beach. The shallows have been known to attract dolphins, and the clean, waist-deep water is ideal for small children. Pack a lunch and settle in for the day; there are a barbecue and restroom facilities nearby.
