When you move to The Village at Wellard, you're not just getting a great home and nearby amenities. The Village has an established, active and welcoming community - making you feel right at home.
The Village boasts a committed group of enthusiastic and hard-working locals, that encourage and support our community by working with other residents to make The Village at Wellard a vibrant, connected, safe, social and supportive place to live. They also provide a forum for discussion between residents and with other groups and organisations, such as Peet and the City of Kwinana.
Located just a short drive away, the Kwinana Library is a great place to get involved in the wider community in the area. Activities include Storytime and Reading time for the kids, a Summer Reading Club for children and online services including driver training, homework help and career assistance.
Located on the corner of Runnymede Gate and The Strand in the heart of The Village at Wellard, the two storey facility includes a range of multi-purpose activity areas, a kitchen, crèche and playground.
This fabulous venue, named after the early settler John Wellard is a hub for the whole community to enjoy. A colourful and exciting program of fun for the whole family is available year-round at the John Wellard Community Centre.
One of The Village community's favourite events are their Market Days - used to celebrate any occasion and held on the second Sunday morning of every month, they're a great way to showcase your talents and engage with your neighbours!
Over recent years, The Village at Wellard’s Community Partnership Program has provided a boost to local volunteer groups, service agencies, clubs and schools in the local area – and they’d like to add to the list!
A great outdoors activity for all the family, the Tour de Wellard is a crowd favourite amongst The Village community. Set up by the team at Creating Communities, this bicycle scavenger hunt has locals meandering through a 10km route, searching for clues and embracing the beautiful landscape on their doorstep. We hope to see another great active family event like this one in the future!
PETScapade Community Event
The community at The Village love their pets, and what better way to showcase the wide variety of animal friends than at a fun filled community event! PETScapade is a huge hit, with past events drawing huge crowds and great atmospheres. The event features a petting zoo, vet and paraphernalia stalls, children's activities and even a pet parade - designed to be a hit with both residents and their various pets.
In partnership, the City of Kwinana and the Rotary Club of Kwinana hold an annual Twilight Christmas Market in Wellard Square on a Saturday evening in December. It's a great opportunity for Christmas shopping, exploring the exciting range of stalls, sampling local treats or getting your neighbours together for a fun night out.
