Eglinton is approximately 44 kilometres from the Perth CBD within the City of Wanneroo local government area. It is bounded to the north by Yanchep and the south by Alkimos.
Eglinton is set to be one of Perth’s highest populated suburbs by 2041 with an expected 30,000 residents – one of the biggest increases in residential development in the next 20 years. It is also expected to add more than 9,000 new dwellings to increase by a phenomenal 1300%.
Residents here enjoy beach access, parks and a community atmosphere that outweigh the distance to the CBD. Despite being further away, Eglinton is by no means inaccessible.

Works have already started on an Eglinton train station on the Joondalup line, with this set to be completed by 2023, making commuting to the city even faster!
