Como is a lush and leafy spot popular with the 30-something age group. It’s a friendly suburb, perfect for raising a family, but the majority of residents are flying solo. Just six kilometres to Perth, Como is ideally located for city professionals. It’s also close to Curtin University for students and the 4,000-odd people who work there.
Although the main demographic of the suburb is child-free, if you are sending the kids to school you’re spoilt for choice. There are a number of schools in the suburb including Como Community Kindergarten, Como Primary School and private girls’ school, Penrhos College. There are plenty of green-grassed parks and Como even has its own beach and jetty, a popular spot for swimming and fishing since the 1920s. Putting greens more your thing? Collier Park Golf is a 27-hole international standard public golf course, driving range and practice facility.
Dwellings in the suburb are varied, with renovated brick houses from the 1940s sitting alongside modern two-storey homes. The riverside houses a number of multi-storey units with views to die for. The local shops are at Waterford Plaza but you’ll find cafes and corner stores dotted around the neighbourhood. Cygnet Cinema, an art-deco cinema, adds a touch of heritage and regularly screens the latest blockbuster and indie movies. Transport is covered by Canning Bridge Train and Bus Stations, and jumping on the Kwinana Highway from here is easy. Prices have held steady over the years, making it an ideal suburb to invest in.
