A real sense of community Platinum Community
Balcatta is fast becoming a destination of choice for over 55’s. More than a third of the 10,000 residents of the suburb are over 55 (2011 Census) and are already enjoy living in this northern suburb. The area is only 10 kilometres from Perth City centre and just minutes from the Innaloo shopping centre where there are discount food markets, access to Centrelink and medical facilities and a cinema complex.
There are two local shopping centres, Northlands Plaza and Amelia Heights for daily shopping trips and close by is a number of large parklands great for morning walks with neighbours or the dog. You can also welcome family and visitors to your new home easily with plenty of free visitor and street parking. Speak to the Village Solutions team about how Balcatta has all the amenities and services needed for a comfortable retirement.
“My cat Lulu and I moved into Platinum Community Balcatta, 7 years ago and I didn’t realise how great the area was until moving in. I often take advantage of the nearby bus routes that take me straight into the City or to Fremantle and even the beach. I also really like the convenience of having Northlands Plaza in walking distance and large shopping centres like Karrinyup and Innaloo nearby. Other residents and I often have self-organised catch ups and outings such as going to the movies nearby and our Anzac Day BBQ gets a great turn out. It’s the kind of community where you have a chat with your neighbours and keep an eye out for each other, everyone here is really friendly. Platinum Community has a different feel to most retirement villages because of its urban location and active residents.”

Inner-city living for over 55s
Leederville Gardens
Leederville is one of Perth’s smallest but most vibrant suburbs located in the bustling City of Vincent precinct just 2km north of the City. Being only one square kilometre, the suburb has countless opportunities for you to get out of the house and be part of the atmosphere at any time.
Start your day with a walk around Lake Monger, lunch at any of the nearby cafés or coffee hotspots or catch an evening film at the outdoor cinema all within walking distance. The nearby Leederville town centre has everything else you need including a post office, hair salons and banks. Retirement is better in Leederville.
“In 1993 I needed to move from a large house and a villa in Leederville Gardens Retirement Estate looked perfect, a small village, ideal location close to shopping and recreational facilities and minutes from the CBD by car, bus or train. I arrived when the village was new and people were moving in, it was apparent that the social life was going to be busy and each year it seems to be getting better. The lively social committee are always looking for ways to include everybody.
Units here are on completely flat ground, there are no steps or walking hazards. We can choose to do as much gardening as we want or none at all, I have gardens in the back yard and out the front door, including a macadamia tree, which I love. Shopping has always been easy with the Mezz on Scarborough Beach Road and the IGA in Leederville nearby. The Re-Store was walking distance in the early years, now I drive but still love it! How do I feel about living here? It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, perfect location, the right size, easy shopping and I’m able to do what I want to do with every aspect of my life.”
