Parmelia is a small suburb located in the City of Kwinana. It's got a lot going for it, including being one of the cheapest suburbs in the metro area to buy a first home and get your foot in the real estate door. It has a rapidly expanding shopping centre, the Kwinana Marketplace, and has great public transport links to the Perth CBD, Rockingham, Mandurah and Cockburn. Welcome to my Suburb takes a closer look at what Parmelia has to offer.
