Located in the centre of the popular north coast, just 15km north of Joondalup and 40km north of Perth, Alkimos offers a coastal lifestyle with a range of education facilities planned, from childcare and kindergarten through to primary and secondary schools. With the proposed Mitchell Freeway to the east and the Indian Ocean to the west, future plans for Alkimos are exciting, including transport options and growth as a northern suburbs city hub. Parks and play lands are scattered throughout Alkimos and there are primary and secondary schooling options available both within Alkimos and in neighbouring suburbs. Amongst others there is an IGA supermarket in Alkimos Beach and a Coles supermarket in Alkimos Trinity estate.
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 and can be viewed from the coastline around Shorehaven Beach, where Oceans 27 restaurant and the nearby Treasure Island Adventure Playground are.
Alkimos Beach is the first Australian community to achieve a 6-Star Green-Star certification by the Green Building Council of Australia, and has been purposefully designed in harmony with its natural surrounds. Around one third of the community is reserved for things like parks, bushlands, and playing fields. The Alkimos Beach City Centre will be a hub of community activity. It will include a major shopping centre, business district as well as education and lifestyle facilities.
