Northern Perth suburb Craigie is sandwiched between the coast and the Mitchell Freeway, 20km north of the CBD. Its proximity to the freeway and accompanying rail link between Perth and Joondalup mean that its transport links are excellent, and the beach is just a short bus ride or walk away. The area is well-served for amenities, with a number of schools and shops nearby.
The area is extremely affordable compared to beachside neighbours: Kallaroo’s median house price is over $600,000, and even northern neighbour Beldon’s median price is around $20,000 more expensive.
Coogee is a southern coastal suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Cockburn.
The suburb takes its name from the lake, Lake Coogee, in the area, which translates to "Body of water" in the native Aboriginal Nyoongar language. Originally this lake was named Lake Munster after Prince William, the Earl of Munster, and later King William IV. The aboriginal name Kou-gee was recorded in 1841 by Thomas Watson and has been variously spelt Koojee, Coojee and Coogee.
