The suburb of Wilson is one of Perth’s hidden gems. Full of nature reserves and wildlife, it’s just nine kilometres from the city but forever away from the hustle and bustle. Development of the suburb only started in the mid-1950’s but it didn’t take long for it to become a popular place for many Perth families to call home. Houses are pretty much the only property type in this established suburb, with its quiet little streets and cul-de-sacs. That means move in and you’ll have plenty of room for a garden, dog and a swing set. Young families are the top demographic, attracted to the area for its proximately to schools as well as the parks, extra room to move and natural beauty.
Canning River Regional Park runs through Wilson and the neighbouring suburb of Cannington. Lo Quay, between Shelley Bridge and Riverton Bridge, sits pretty on the Canning River foreshore and is the perfect place to take the kids or catch up with friends over coffee. Alternatively, at the Canning end of Wilson, the Canning River Café, parklands, sporting fields and playground offer another sanctuary in this amazing suburb. If you’re an active type it’s just the spot for canoeing or stand-up paddle boarding. Not so active? It’s the ideal spot to start that fitness plan with lots of walking and cycling trails along the river. Get lucky and you might spot a dolphin or two having a play in the sunshine.
Wilson is gaining popularity with those looking for a place to settle and put down roots, especially those looking for larger family-style dwellings, so don’t miss out on a slice of it for yourself.
