Iluka, meaning “near the sea”, screams prestige with its perfectly manicured verges, parks, and properties. It has only reached its development maturity in the last few years and there is still building being completed on the Burns Beach side. Mansions dot the ocean front and plenty of substantial two storey $1-2+ million bracket homes throughout the suburb.  Iluka may not have the facilities of its next-door suburbs, but it has a quiet “neighbourhood” feel with high quality housing reflected in the high median house price. 

Selling points: 
The very picturesque Sir James McCusker park forms the centrepiece of the suburb where weddings, carols by candlelight, movies and other events are regularly held alongside the two ponds with beautiful water features and swans. There’s a cricket, football and bowling club, as well as the coastal path running the whole length of the suburb. Its outdoorsy, sense-of-community feel just on the ocean side is its selling point. It’s hard not to have an active lifestyle in this suburb! 

Most sought-after properties: 
Iluka is comprised of houses, some on cottage blocks, but all a minimum of 185sqm. The majority are 4 bedroom + homes. Executive living style with either option, both housing styles attract families, empty-nesters and retirees alike.

Recent changes: 

Whilst still in the final development stages, the City of Joondalup do a fantastic job of assuring the verges, parks, and trails are well maintained on a regular basis. Also, most recently, the reserve near the end of Shenton Avenue has been upgraded with toilet facilities and barbeques just a stone throw away from the beach. 

Best streets: 
The northwest section of Iluka, closer to Burns Beach, is mainly newer homes but there’s underground power throughout and any street could be seen as favourable as the other. 

Public transport: 
Buses service Iluka to connect passengers to the main hubs at Joondalup and Currambine train stations. From here, take the 30 minute train along the Mitchell Freeway into Perth CBD.

Main arteries: 
Shenton Avenue to the south and Burns Beach Road to the north all run west to east and connect to the freeway.  Delgado Parade is the main thoroughfare within the suburb with four lane Marmion Avenue and the scenic coastal drive of Burns Beach Road running parallel along the border connecting to neighbouring suburbs.
