Selling points: Pinjarra is the centre of the Peel region. It has a great country atmosphere, with plenty of new infrastructure such as the Coles shopping centre, recreation centre upgrade and new sports amenities. With a population of approximately 17,000 people, the Shire of Murray continues to be in the top 10 fastest growing localities in the nation. By the year 2031, population forecasts suggest Murray will be home to over 45,000 residents.  

 Most sought after properties: Brick and tile homes with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, double garages and on a range of block sizes are popular, depending on the buyer type. Recently, cottage blocks with three bedrooms and two bathrooms are also proving popular.

Most common properties:  Large to medium-sized homes on decent blocks. Rural and lifestyle blocks are also available.

Top amenities: The area has high quality public schools and a major modern shopping village, which includes Coles. The suburb has lots of history, plenty of lifestyle choices and hobbies to entertain all. A new swimming pool, hockey oval and upgraded football fields have sprung up, as well as a new lifestyle village.

Local industry and business: The economic base of the Shire is strongly influenced by the Alumina refining at Pinjarra, with more than a third of all jobs carried out in the Shire of Murray associated with this industry. Other important industries include construction (driven by housing growth in the region) and other services, such as retail trade, education and health. Agriculture and forestry are the dominant land uses, but only employ less than 10% of the population.

Recent changes: Over the last 10 years there have been many improvements, including facelifts for most sporting grounds and complexes, a new shopping centre and new land subdivisions. A new freeway from Perth has been built, as well as a highway to Bunbury and a train station 20 minutes away in Mandurah.

Best streets: Pinjarra Meadows is a new estate located close to the town centre between the Pinjarra Golf Club, the Murray River, farm land and the Raven Winery. There are only 143 blocks and the homes already in place are good quality and new. 

Public transport: Local transport is currently poor. A bus service is planned, as well as a number of other improvements.

Main arteries: Its close proximity to the Freeway offers easy access to Perth (50mins), while a highway takes drivers to Bunbury and a state of the art transportation network means the City of Mandurah is only 15 minutes away.
