About Alkimos

Centrally situated in Perth’s northern coastal corridor, the Alkimos precinct comprises of four separate developments, planned and developed by DevelopmentWA to interact as a premier, fully master-planned neighbourhood. 

Alkimos is one of the biggest coastal developments in Perth for more than 50 years. DevelopmentWA has planned each development individually whilst ensuring they work together as an interconnected precinct providing housing choice and embedding green energy, smart water, community well-being including employment and connectivity. 

This forward thinking and planning doesn’t happen without the input of people from every aspect in the development. A range of stakeholders including State Government, community groups, land owners and the public are working together with DevelopmentWA to create and maintain an innovative and self-sustaining community.

Along with the multi award winning Alkimos Beach, developed in partnership with Lendlease, which has already established itself as a thriving centre for growth, other developments that are reshaping the area include the new residential community of Alkimos Vista, also developed with Lendlease, the future Alkimos foreshore development, and the future pedestrian and transit friendly Alkimos Central designed to bring much needed amenities and infrastructure to this fast growing area.

Boasting the regions finest swimming beach, Alkimos has become one of the most sought after coastal suburbs, with an exciting future.

Alkimos Train Station

Alkimos Train Station


Building a community for over 50,000 people requires a public transport system that’s able to keep up with the demand. To encourage residents and visitors to not rely solely on their cars, the Alkimos vision is led by sustainability and transportation.

The welcomed implementation of the State Governments infrastructure program, the planned Yanchep Rail extension will extend the existing Joondalup line by 13.8km from Butler and will provide stations to Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep. This new train line extension is sure to change how the northern coastal corridor travel, commute and live. To stay informed on project updates and construction dates you can join the METRONET facebook group here.


History of Alkimos

History of Alkimos

Where the south-westerly sea breeze dances with the easterly land wind, traditional custodians of the land, the Whadjuk Noongar people in times past knew the place that is now Alkimos as Wardan Gaba Boodjera – the land with the oceans to the west.

Today the suburb of Alkimos is named after the shipwreck of the Greek freighter Alkimos which ran aground on the coast nearby in 1963.

The wreck lies a few hundred metres off shore leaving a small portion of the shipwreck peeking out from the depths. Despite countless tales of the ship being haunted, the site remains a popular spot for divers and at times, surfers. To acknowledge the areas link to the wreck, you’ll now find a commemorative sculpture at the intersection of Marmion Avenue and Graceful Boulevard.
