Industrial areas

Wangara Industrial Area

The Wangara Industrial Area is a well-established hub for manufacturing, engineering, and construction companies in the City of Wanneroo. With its proximity to major transport routes and access to a skilled workforce, the Wangara Industrial Area offers a range of investment opportunities for businesses looking to expand or relocate. Opportunities include business re-location and expansion, the purchase of land and property, development partnerships, and joint ventures.

Wangara is an established industrial area in Perth’s north-west corridor. It is one of the busiest industrial areas in Perth and is complemented by excellent transport connections. The area is an NBN Business Fibre Zone, providing superior business connectivity.

The City is currently working to deliver increased CCTV infrastructure in the Wangara Industrial Area to further enhance safety and security as part of the Wangara Smart City Technology project.

Located on 1,000 hectares of land, the Neerabup Industrial Area is perfectly positioned to meet the industrial needs of Perth’s growing north-west corridor.

The development is being rolled out in stages, with a range of industrial lots available to suit individual business requirements. Freehold options are available for businesses that prefer a blank canvas.
