Treeby is the newest suburb in the City of Cockburn, and Kara its newest estate. The area is going through a period of massive growth – between 2021 and 2026, it is projected the population will grow by 54% from 3516 residents to 6494 residents.* The area is popular with residents from a wide range of backgrounds, thanks to its proximity to Fiona Stanley Hospital, Murdoch University and light industrial manufacturing hubs.
In recognition of this growth, the government is improving transportation links surrounding Treeby. Armadale Road has had significant upgrades to improve connectivity to Kwinana Freeway. It is serviced by a bus route, with another scheduled to start on Ghostgum Avenue, which borders the estate.
