Alkimos Western Australia – The Best Kept Secret in Australia?
Alkimos is one of the best kept secrets in the country, but for how long? Named after the doomed (and some say haunted) Greek freighter Alkimos, which ran aground on the coast in 1963, the area has so much potential for a place to build a new home.
Alkimos Western Australia holds great promise, both as an investment area and as a wonderful place to bring up a family. The area is part of a big plan to draw in tens of thousands of people in the coming decades.
Alkimos Western Australia currently has a reputation perhaps as a place ‘too far’ from central Perth. However, with “Australia’s 3rd city” growing at breakneck pace, and the lure of the Indian Ocean lifestyle for young families, couples and retirees alike (especially those moving to Western Australia for the first time) – There’s more than enough reasons to build property in Alkimos, Western Australia.
Alkimos represents much about the future of Western Australia and greater Perth.
On the beach is a community being built on the principles of sustainability, strong family and community lies, economic growth, education and work opportunities. There are huge plans for highly integrated public and private infrastructure.
Alikimos has the ability to sustain generations of new Western Australian’s, a place to pass on from one generation to the next with the confidence of a better, sustainable and ‘relaxed and comfortable’ future.
The Growth of Alkimos:
Alkimos House and Land Packages have been selling rapidly for the last several years, with the area seeing a huge spike in population since the start of the decade. The area is well on track to sustain a population well over 50,000.
Alkimos, the next big thing:
The Alkimnos area, in the City of Wannerro, has been in the sights of Australian, Western Australian state and local government politicians and planners for some time. The area is part of the Alkimos-Eglinton region, an ambitious plan for a major city center and urban region that will be home to tens of thousands of people and billions of dollars in public and private infrastructure.
According to planning reports from LandCorp, Western Australia’s government planning agency, Alkimos will be home to 57,000 people in the coming 20-years. There will be thousands of new homes constructed and residents moving to Alkimos in the next few years. The investment in infrastructure at Alkimos will include world class “hospitals, tertiary educational institutions, major retail, commercial and recreational facilities.”
LandCorp Boss Ross Holt said in 2012 that, “Alkimos Beach will be a higher density area…But it will also be high amenity living. It’s not about stacking people on top of one another, it will be a great development and people will want to live there.”
Plans for Alkimos in the next few years:
- Extension of the Joondalup line and the creation of the Alkimos Beach Train Station.
- Extension of Major Roads (already completed or underway)
- Shopping and restaurant precincts.
- Commercial/CBD district
- Sports clubs opening

There’s already a lot of infrastructure in place, including Alkimos Baptist College, St James’ Anglican School (open 2015), Butler Senior High School, Shopping Centres including Supermarkets and other retail outlets just south in Brighton, with more investment to come in town.
