Grass roots investment inspires changing landscape
July 25th, 2017
At Dunsborough Lakes we don’t believe in letting the grass grow under our feet… not least when it comes to landscaping. In the past 12 months we’ve invested over $1.5million dollars in new parkland, play areas, stonework and planting initiatives. This includes extensive development of the Fairways parklands, the entry to the Greens precinct and further works around the Display Village and Sales Office.
In addition, over 100 new street trees have been planted and we have maintained our commitment to providing generous landscaping packages to new residents with a view to preserving a high quality of streetscape across the entire estate. Although we couldn’t be happier with the outcome of these projects, we have no plans to rest on our laurels just yet. Over the next 12 months our team of green-fingered architects, landscapers and gardeners will be getting back to work creating two brand new parks in the Greens and Fairways precincts.
Land sales strong as Display Village nears capacity
July 25th, 2017
As the rest of the State’s property sector continues to do it tough Dunsborough Lakes has maintained an impressive ability to buck the trend. Land sales have held strong in the last 12 months with local buyers keen to take advantage of improved affordability and generous builder incentives.
“We are the only project in the area offering house and land at prices well under $500,000,” says Estate Manager Geoff Bowman. “This makes the estate appealing to pretty much all segments of the market, from first home buyers eager to escape the rent trap, through to downsizers and investors.” Land prices at Dunsborough Lakes currently range from $149,000 for traditional cottage lots up to $360,000 for family-sized homesites of 500sqm plus.
Evidence of the project’s ongoing popularity can be witnessed at the Display Village each weekend, where visitor numbers continue to rise.
Eight of the village’s proposed 10 display homes are now open showcasing the very latest designs from local project builders. The Display Village is open Mon, Weds, Sat & Sun from 1-5pm and, combined with lunch at a local winery or ice creams for the kids at nearby Simmo’s, makes for an ideal stop-off on a day out.

Tick! Primary school location confirmed
July 24th, 2014
Following a State Government decision to select Dunsborough Lakes as a site for a future primary school development, Wallis Property is to provide land for the new facility in the heart of the estate.
A Department of Education spokesperson said: “We have been working with Wallis Property to finalise the location of the future primary school site in Dunsborough Lakes. The proposed site is located at the south end of the estate on the future extension of Dunsborough Lakes Drive, west of the intersection with Prestwick Road.
“The site will be 3.62ha in area and this location offers significant benefits with good road infrastructure and the potential for the sharing of the future district sports facilities on the abutting public open space.”
The decision to select Dunsborough Lakes for a new school is based on population growth and the number of children likely to reach school age in the review period. With total enrolments in Dunsborough Primary School in Old Dunsborough peaking this year at 699, it’s evident that a newschooling option will be required in the near future.

Golfers take a shot at ownership
July 24th, 2014
A Members’ vote to take on ownership of the Dunsborough Lakes Golf Club was almost unanimous, with all but one of the 144 members attending the meeting agreeing to the exciting new direction.
A five-person Board was quickly formed to support the bid, and steps were taken to raise funds for the purchase, which is anticipated to settle around mid-June 2014.
“What Members and visitors can expect is a whole new culture,” Board Chairman Graham Moore says. “We plan to introduce functions and dinners, co-ordinate corporate days and identify sponsorship opportunities. We would also like to extend benefits to non-members.”
In future, social memberships may also form part of the new format. The club wants to extend the use of the facilities with ideas such as six or nine-hole competitions for younger people with school-aged children, and there is potential to introduce crèche facilities and mothers’ clubs too.
“We have a good fun club and everyone who comes to us comments on the atmosphere,” adds Graham. “There’s so much to do, just like any business starting up, but there’s always a lot of laughter.”
A membership levy of between $300 and $1000 (distance dependent) was agreed with an overwhelming amount of support. However, the community is being encouraged to purchase debentures to help the Membership drive for ownership.
