Hello I am Joanne Rossiter the DSNSG coordinator for Perth. We are located south of the river near the naval base HMAS Stirling.
I am a mum to 2 young active boys with my eldest being much more active as diagnosed with ADHD. I am hoping to make positive relationships with our Perth families and bring awareness to our families with special needs.
Situated on the sleek Swan River, Western Australia’s capital city, Perth, is home to soft-sand beaches, scenic parks, and a CBD thriving with small bars, creative restaurants and unique street art. From Perth you have prime access to 80 kilometres of stunning beaches, nearby Rottnest Island, and Swan Valley wine tours. For local culture, check out the portside streets of Fremantle or Perth’s museum and gallery precinct.
Suburbs of Perth
Swanbourne – Campbell Barracks
Swanbourne is located on the edge of Campbell Barracks. Homes in the surrounding suburbs are sought-after due to proximity to the inner city and the beach.
Karrakatta - Irwin Barracks
Karrakatta is located within the City of Nedlands and 7 km west of the CBD. The Irwin Barracks are located north of the Fremantle railway line, which passes through the suburb.
Rockingham – Fleetbase West
Rockingham is 10-15 minute drive from HMAS Stirling and is a relatively large city which includes the suburbs of Secret Harbour, Port Kennedy and Baldivis. Rockingham is predominately a ‘blue collar’ area and has a medium to high-level of rental properties available to suit all budgets.
Bullsbrook – Pearce
Located in the Chittering Valley, Bullsbrook is a rural township only minutes from RAAF Base Pearce. Outer suburbs within the Pearce posting locality provide a diverse lifestyle to suit all families.
Defence postings in the Pilbara and northern WA area include RAAF Base Learmonth (Exmouth), Geraldton and Karratha (Pilbara). The Karratha Visitor Centre is a useful resource that provides regional information, attractions, activities and things to do in the West Pilbara coast and Karratha region.
