Award winning developer, Defence Housing Australia (DHA), has completed sub-division works on its newest land development in WA—Coolong Gardens.

Located in the fast growing region of Baldivis in the City of Rockingham, Coolong Gardens offers a piece of coastal paradise within 40 minutes from Perth and walking distance from the new Baldivis Gardens Primary School, local shops, public library, lakes, beaches, nature reserves and bush walks.

Only 22 lots are for sale to the public in this niche, private estate—with the remaining eight lots providing homes for Defence members and their families.

‘This is where the coast comes to life,’ said the Mayor of Rockingham, Barry Sammels. ‘We have a diverse community and HMAS Stirling and the Navy is very much part of the community we love, and has been for many decades.

‘We’ve had a long working relationship with Defence Housing Australia and we want to keep working with them. With Coolong Gardens I think there’s going to be a long future for DHA in our community,’ Mayor Sammels said.

Nestled between bushland and an established suburban neighbourhood, Coolong Gardens offers modern amenities with a rural ambience and an abundance of recreational activities on your doorstep.

The Coolong Gardens subdivision is a respectful complement to the Bush Forever sites, which are in close proximity to the development. These sites form part of Western Australia’s strategic plan for the conservation of the natural flora and fauna of the Swan Coastal Plain.

DHA’s green credentials are widely recognised in the industry and have been extensively awarded for creating vibrant, healthy and sustainable communities built on environmentally-friendly design solutions.

In addition to the natural conservation values of Coolong Gardens, all land lots are suitable for solar energy installation and other low-energy consumption design initiatives. Land lot sizes range from 303 sqm to 1500 sqm.

DHA has appointed David Evans in Rockingham as the preferred sales agent.
