Surrounded by significantly more expensive suburbs, Willagee is sitting on the brink of elevationFull summary Surrounded by significantly more expensive suburbs, Willagee is sitting on the brink of elevation.

Situated in a prime location with easy access to the beach, river and Perth’s CBD, it is easy to understand why interest in the area is significantly on the rise.

Currently with a vacancy rate of just 1.25%, this is expected to further shrink as more people realise the potential of the area.

Willagee offers almost anything people could want or need from a suburb.

With 10 parks and reserves, a library, community centre, school and great public transport, the suburb is becoming very popular with families.

Many development projects underway mean the facilities in the area are only going to keep improving.

The recent revitalisation of the Archibald Street shopping strip is just one example of many.

Popular streets in the suburb include Winnacott Street and Butler Street due to their central location.Close
