Why you’ll live well in Australia’s First 6 Star Green Star community



Alkimos Beach was the first community in Australia to receive a 6 Star Green Star Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, Australia’s peak body setting the standard for healthy, resilient, positive buildings and places.

A Green Star Communities rating considers environmental measures alongside the liveability and economic prosperity of a community, ensuring a safe, accessible, affordable, productive, and culturally rich place to live. Strong governance practises plus innovation are also a consideration. The tool assesses these measures across the planning, development, and construction stages of a community. 6 Star represents the highest rating and stands for ‘world leadership’ in sustainable building practices.

This accolade sets Alkimos Beach apart from other developments, creating a place that supports your wellbeing, has the amenity to keep you connected and contributes to reducing your ecological footprint.

A place for wellbeing
Ample green spaces, access to the beach and a range of community initiatives support healthy and active living at Alkimos Beach.

Every home is located within just 400m of a park, and with a myriad of open green and recreational spaces throughout the community, there are many places for exercise and connection with friends, family, and nature.

Unique to Alkimos Beach is the proximity to one of Perth’s most idyllic and safe swimming beaches. Easy access to the sandy shoreline and crystal-clear water will encourage you to get moving and enjoy the outdoors.

Innovative community projects have been proven to establish and grow a strong sense of belonging at Alkimos Beach. Our partnership with Surf Life Saving WA saw the establishment of the Alkimos Surf Life Saving Club at Alkimos Beach and recognised Alkimos Beach as the first ever BeachSAFE community with free BeachSAFE programs for residents and school students. Various sporting clubs for all ages, an active Progress Association, plus an array of craft, gardening and other special interest groups offer something for everyone to be involved in, make new friends, and truly belong.

Connected to what you need
Convenient access to shops, public transport, medical facilities, work and education, and the provision of state-of-the-art digital infrastructure are key benefits of living at Alkimos Beach.

The Gateway Shopping Precinct, located at the front of the community, is home to an IGA, medical centre, gym, childcare, and a range of entertainment and dining options, while the future Alkimos Central city centre masterplanned by DevelopmentWA and Alkimos Station, which is adjacent to Alkimos Beach, will make the commute a breeze.

Alkimos Beach is also providing a fast speed fibre optic network connection to every dwelling that delivers enough bandwidth reliably to meet the demands for flexible and modern communication.

And with two schools located within the community, Kindergarten to Year 6 at Alkimos Beach Primary School and Kindergarten to Year 12 at St James Anglican School, the kids are free to walk or cycle every day. Alkimos Beach is also close to the newly opened Alkimos College which is currently enrolling for Years 7 to 9 and expanding each year.

A win-win for you and our environment
Every home at Alkimos Beach is built to be energy and water efficient, which means savings for you, and benefits for the environment. To reduce the impact of the urban development, features such as energy-efficient heating and cooling and hot water, plus solar PV systems are included as a minimum at each Alkimos Beach home. More than 80% of the lots at Alkimos Beach come with good solar orientation, too.

These cost-effective features help reduce your ecological footprint, while keeping energy and water bills down, and adding value to your home.

Moreover, you’ll have access to the Sustainable Living @ Alkimos Beach program which provides videos, workshops, and one-on-one coaching to help make eco-friendly changes to the way you build and live, which could lead to further savings for you and the environment.

Conservation efforts are also an important part of life at Alkimos Beach, with protection of the natural coastline a top priority. Environmental protection activities include weed, pest, bushfire, erosion, and people management along the coast to help preserve habitats for wildlife and plant species.

By purchasing in a 6 Star Green Star community, you are getting a lifestyle that is designed to better its natural surrounds and those who call it home.

At Alkimos Beach, you’ll live well now, and into the future.
