Congratulations to the entire OP LAKC 17 team on their outstanding achievement having completed the gruelling 96km Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea!
The commitment, teamwork and physical and mental strength displayed by the Junior Legatees and their ADF mentors was impressive and their reflections along the way, captured in this video, incredibly moving.
We are extremely proud to support Legacy Australia and to be able to share the experiences and wonderful achievements of these group of outstanding young Australians.
Operation Legacy Kokoda Challenge – ready for take off
POSTED ON 25 Aug 2017
As the group depart on Monday to take on the gruelling 96km track, hear from Peet Managing Director and CEO, Brendan Gore, on why we’re proud to be supporting some very special Legatees on this incredible journey.
The Peet Group today announced an operating profit and statutory profit after tax of $44.8 million for the year ended 30 June 2017, which represents an increase of 5% compared with last financial year.
Managing Director and CEO, Brendan Gore, said the results were achieved on the back of continuing strong conditions across the Group’s east coast markets.
“The Group has continued to achieve price growth in these key markets and particularly across the Victoria portfolio. There were also signs of improvement in the Queensland portfolio, with increased levels of enquiry and sales,” said Mr Gore.
Supporting the community is in our DNA. Here are just some of the highlights of the wonderful local groups and organisations we have supported through our Community Partnership Program over the past year.
Our commitment to innovation keeps us looking for new ways to deliver exciting lifestyle opportunities for residents in our communities across the country. Peet is excited to have joined forces with ‘experts in fun,’ the Mamma Knows Melbourne team, in an exclusive partnership to guide the design and development of our parks and playgrounds at Cornerstone and Newhaven in the west, and Aston and Aspect in the north.
Operation Legacy Australia Kokoda Challenge 2017 (OP LAKC 17) reached a significant milestone recently, by bringing together Legacy youth from across Australia and their Australian Defence Force (ADF) Mentors for the first time on Exercise POPONDETTA PRELUDE.
Lifestyles are evolving and Peet is creating communities that respond to the changing needs of homebuyers at all stages of life. Not surprisingly, more residents are making the most of the shared spaces – parks and open spaces that are designed as a kind of ‘communal backyard’ with places to get active and also relax with parklands, waterways, walking and cycling trails, BBQs, shelters, and play equipment.
We have a big, bold vision for Flagstone in Queensland where 12,000 homes and a complete city centre will be built over the next three decades and were excited to mark a major milestone on the project last week.
Peet preferred proponent for affordable housing project in Brabham
POSTED ON 5 Jul 2017
Peet is pleased to have been selected as the preferred proponent to partner with the WA Housing Authority to deliver the new Brabham project.
With the potential to be home to thousands of residents with more than 3,000 dwellings, schools, neighbourhood shops and recreational areas, Brabham will be a major transit-oriented development linking the Swan Valley with the Perth CBD.
The new Lakelands Shopping Centre opened its doors to hundreds of waiting shoppers on Wednesday 21 June and is now the largest shopping centre between Mandurah and Rockingham south of Perth.
The 20,000sqm centre is anchored by Coles, K-Mart and ALDI and boasts more than 40 specialty stores.
A unique exhibition of artworks from current and former serving defence personnel will be open – with some works available for sale – on the weekend of 25-26 June only at Wilkinson’s Gallery, Claremont Showgrounds.
More than 100 works from participants in the Military Art Program Australia (MAPA), including representatives of Army (including SASR), Navy and Air Force, feature portraits, landscapes, abstracts and military war dogs, wildlife and other military and non-military subjects, a variety of sculptures and other works.
If you’re looking to take that first step on the homeownership ladder, the Federal Government’s First Home Super Saver Scheme will help you save for a deposit by salary sacrificing into your superannuation account.
We have reached a major milestone at Flagstone, with construction of the $6 million first Phase of the Flagstone Central Park now underway!
Designed to be a real destination for the whole Flagstone region the Park covers 10 hectares and will be delivered in stages over the next four years. Stages 1 and 2 will include active and passive recreation areas with an adventure theme, including a dog park and innovative skate plaza, which are due to open before the end of this year.
Flagstone Central Park will also incorporate a village meeting place, multi-purpose sports field, play equipment, plenty of open space, walking trails and picnic areas.
Today's vision, Tomorrow's reality

Peet was pleased to be a gold partner of the 2017 UDIA National Congress which celebrated its 25th anniversary in Perth, welcoming industry leaders from around the country.
Peet’s commitment to innovation has always been a key driver of its success. Today’s affordability pressures; changing demographics and lifestyles; and the need to limit urban sprawl have all contributed to the increased demand for smaller lots and built form options that don’t compromise on space or quality.
Continuing strong conditions across the Peet Group’s east coast markets were reflected in our performance during the first half of the 2017 financial year. The Group recorded an operating profit after tax and statutory profit for 1H17 of $19.8 million – a 7% increase on the previous corresponding period.
Improved margins and earnings were achieved on the back of price growth in both Funds Management and Development projects in the Victorian portfolio; the contribution of new projects across Australia; and Peet’s continuing focus on efficiencies across the business. It’s all made possible thanks to the dedication and commitment of our team and we thank each and every one of you for what you bring to the business.
Art at sea helps WA forces this festive season
POSTED ON 7 Dec 2016
WA defence personnel are taking up ‘arms’ in the form of pencils and paints to help them cope with being far from family and home during this festive season.
A new initiative is encouraging serving men and women to immerse themselves in drawing and painting while they are away on a tour of duty.
The Art In The Field project provides individual art packs to defence bases, outposts and naval vessels to give military personnel an artistic alternative to the usual off-duty activities such as fitness, sports and games – with a high degree of therapeutic benefit.
