Western Australia

Allara is a vibrant, self-sustaining coastal community located in the growing suburb of Eglinton, that cleverly integrates active open spaces and offers housing diversity responsive to the demands of the 21st century.

Community at the heart of design

Spanning 240 hectares, Allara was created to ensure an expedited land release and supply; design excellence, affordable living in the metropolitan area, and environmental leadership.   

DevelopmentWA together with Satterley Property Group commenced masterplanning of the site in 2012, with first lots released in 2014. Once complete, the estate will be home to approximately 10 thousand people living in 3,400 dwellings, a neighbourhood centre, schools and parks.

The Local Structure Plan was created in consultation with the Department for Planning, City of Wanneroo and all other relevant government agencies, followed by a design review. Development guidelines were formulated to manage the mix of land uses, design quality, sustainability principles and other best practice initiatives. Guided by transit-oriented development principles, the Development Contribution Plan has specified the inclusion of a number of facilities for the area, such as district playing fields, an indoor recreation centre and multi-use hard courts.

Allara is located adjacent Regional Open Space and 500 metres north of the future Eglinton train station. At the heart of Allara, near the future neighbourhood centre is Kinkuna Park and Waterplay, which has become a destination for the surrounding community and connects to a network of pathways around the estate. It is due to this extensive planning and delivery of early amenity, that Allara has attained the highest EnviroDevelopment Certification from the Urban Development Institute of Australia.
