Bushmead, originally part of Hazelmere, is located in the City of Swan 16 kilometres from the Perth CBD. Situated in Noongar traditional Aboriginal country, Bushmead is Perth’s newest and most natural suburb set amongst 273 hectares of natural bushland, parks and recreational reserves. Bushmead is the perfect place to call home for those longing for a tree change with all of life’s modern conveniences nearby.

The development at Bushmead has an environmentally sustainable focus and is designed to conserve the surrounding flora and fauna. It is one of a few developments in WA to have been certified under all six areas of the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) EnviroDevelopment program.

Two thirds of Bushmead will be reserved as Conservation Bushland to protect and enhance the natural habitat. The remaining third, will comprise a selection of approximately 900 bush front blocks each carefully designed to reduce energy and water use. Over 2,000 residents are expected to reside in Bushmead in the next ten years.
