Quinns Rocks, in the City of Wanneroo, is around 40km from the Perth CBD and is approximately five square kilometres in size. It is made up of three identifiable parts:

  • The beachfront area comprising the original townsite of Quinns, colloquially known as "Old Quinns". The area here is characterized by rolling hills and roads, overhead power lines on wooden poles, few pavements and many unique houses with distinct architectural designs dating from the 1960s and 1970s.
  • Norfolk Estate was built in Quinns Rocks much later in the early 1990s in the area east of Tapping Way. It is distinguished from "Old Quinns" by underground power lines, cul-de-sac street systems and modern bungalow housing. The estate also contains a higher concentration of public housing.
  • The final part of Quinns, known simply as "Quinns Beach", was the final portion of the area to be developed, and borders Jindalee in the north.

The population of Quinns Rocks in 2011 was 8,915 with a predominant age group of 10-14 years old.  Households are primarily couples with children who have one parent working full time, and one working part time.

In 2011 66.8% of home in Quinns Rocks were owner occupied, with 30% of homes being rented for a median rent of $340 per week. 49.3% of households are likely to repaying a median of $2,167 per month in mortgage repayments. 67.8% of occupied private dwellings had four or more bedrooms.

In December 2016 the median sale price for Quinns Rocks was $785,000, which is very high considering previously the highest median throughout 2014, 2015 and 2016 was $635,000 in January 2016 and $610,000 in February 2014. Let’s hope this is a good sign for what is to come in the area in 2017!
