The future is bright at Ellenbrook

If you’ve ever wanted to live in an established, thriving community, where all the services you dream of are already in place, consider Ellenbrook in Perth’s northeast.

Innovative design backed by a strong sense of community

Located within the City of Swan, development at Ellenbrook started in the 1990s and it experienced rapid growth between the 2001 and 2011. According to Australian Census figures, the town’s population quadrupled during that time.

Named after Ellen Stirling, the wife of Western Australia's first governor, Ellenbrook was developed as a joint venture between the Department of Communities and a LWP Property Group syndicate.

Community planning at the heart of Ellenbrook

A comprehensive community plan was devised with the City of Swan and nearby residents to ensure Ellenbrook became a viable and sustainable community with facilities and services being delivered in a planned way to meet the needs of the community.

The plan, helped Ellenbrook grow into an award-winning town. In 2015, Ellenbrook was named the best master-planned community in the world by the International Real Estate Federation, and awarded the prestigious FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Award 2015.

At the time, LWP Property Group Managing Director, Danny Murphy, said the win recognised Ellenbrook’s innovations and long-term success.

“Great community planning and a well-developed sense of community are the two factors that matter most to buyers at Ellenbrook,” he said.

“These things matter to us as well, which is why both have been at the heart of LWP Property Group’s vision for Ellenbrook since the beginning.”

Today, the suburb continues to blossom and Ellenbrook is Australia’s most awarded new town.
