The electorate of Tangney is one of the best places to live in Australia.
Vibrant and cosmopolitan, Tangney can boast the beauty of the Swan River combined with the economic power of its educational and medical heart – Murdoch University along with the Fiona Stanley Hospital campus.
The electorate is now one of the fastest growing electorates in WA with almost 100,000 residents coming from virtually every nation in the world.
Located just south of the Perth CBD, Tangney contains within it most of the City of Melville, a part of the City of Canning and a small portion of the City of Cockburn.
Tangney is also shaped by a thriving local community and a great number of grass roots membership organisations and service clubs that are dedicated to helping others .
Local suburbs within Tangney include Alfred Cove, Applecross, Ardross, Attadale, Bateman, Bicton, Booragoon, Brentwood, Bull Creek, Ferndale, Kardinya, Leeming, Lynwood, Melville, Mount Pleasant, Murdoch, Myaree, Parkwood, Riverton, Rossmoyne, Shelley, Willagee, Willetton and Winthrop.
Traditionally a centre of residential and family homes, Tangney also boasts a wide range of industries and business that define Australia’s entrepreneurial spirit. Light industrial and trade supplies in Myaree, specialist medical and retail in Booragoon, and some of WA’s premier schools in Rossmoyne, Willetton, Lynwood and Attadale.
Add to this a thriving and growing culture of restaurants, cafes and small bars and Tangney is a very special place to live.
