    We are situated 10 minutes from Joondalup, a busy township with cinemas, restaurants, shops and a direct rail service taking you straight into Perth. We are not on a bus route and it would be advisable, but not essential to have your own transport. Carramar and Banksia Grove are a short distance away and have a local bistro and pub as well as doctors, food take aways and fast food outlets. Wanneroo is also a short drive away and is a pioneer town. The beaches are a ten minute drive away.
