Why Invest in Cockburn

Cockburn, the best place to invest 

The City of Cockburn is the place where you can have it all. It’s either here already, it’s right on our doorstep, or we’re working hard to make it happen here. We are an epicentre of innovation and opportunity for industry and a major contributor of economic activity and employment in the State. We’re home to five of WA’s most successful industrial and commercial hubs, with everything from defence to manufacturing. 

Investing in Cockburn blends strategic location with diverse urban property offerings, thriving industry clusters, significant leisure facilities and extensive beaches. 

Top reasons to invest

  • Strategically positioned as the CBD of the southern corridor and the heart of the Western Trade Coast, Cockburn is serviced by an expanding passenger and freight rail network, excellent road infrastructure and is close to the future Westport.
  • Cockburn offers a diverse range of property options, from affordable apartments to luxurious waterfront homes and some of the most competitive commercial and industrial land and leasing opportunities in Perth. 
  • Cockburn is the centre of Western Australia’s shipbuilding and marine sector with thriving industry clusters in advanced manufacturing fuelled by a highly skilled work ready labour force and access to NBN enterprise ethernet for 70% of local businesses.* 
Cockburn is already a place where you can have it all, with everything from pristine beaches and wetlands to theme parks and world-class recreation facilities, but there is more to come with the planned with $1 billion transformation of Cockburn Gateway shopping centre and the world-class Perth Surf Park opening in 2025.
