tells a story
for Port Coogee
The wait is over... living art
tells a powerful story
It’s been a long journey, but the end
result is a breathtaking and a lasting
testament to the inspiration and hard
work of three renowned local artists.
The Kidogo Artists Team - indigenous artists Deborah Bonar
and Wendy Hayden, together with Joanna Robertson - has
created a stunning contemporary artwork for Port Coogee
that has been painstakingly reproduced in glass and installed
in park locations around the estate. Comprising seven
separate pieces, it tells seven stories inspired by the Beeliar
Boodjar and the Nyoongar people.
Joanna Robertson said the project has been an

“We three artists have had an amazing time working and
painting together,” Joanna said.
“The process of creating a large scale public art piece like
this has been fascinating.
“We have worked with a terriﬁc, highly professional team
of smart people. Australand has been so enthusiastic and
supportive right from the start; they couldn’t do enough
to make it easy for us to logistically create the designs we
wanted to do. They didn’t ask us to change anything, allowing
us to deliver the total, seven-piece project as
“And we cannot praise enough the enormous effort of the team
from Cooling Brothers. They went to extraordinary lengths to
match these gorgeous colours in the glass; to cut such difﬁcult
forms so accurately; and to install the works so precisely.”
The art pieces were installed on 14 October 2013.
“It was breathtaking to see our designs ﬁnally in place,”
“The rich colours in the artworks really sung against the
blackened grass trees and brilliant blue sky.”
The project was managed for Australand by Beverley Iles
“We are a not for proﬁt visual artists membership association
who acted as a project manager for Australand,”
Ms Iles explained.
“We have an Indigenous development programme, and were
very pleased to be able to work with Kidogo in developing this
work for Port Coogee.”
All three artists are excited to ﬁnally see their work in place
after years of hard work.
“We are thrilled and very proud of these pieces,” Joanna said.
They look incredible against the backdrop of the beautiful
landscape and homes of Port Coogee. We love the fact
that residents and visitors will enjoy the Aboriginal stories,
and see the references to the immediate environment.

Grab your hat and sunscreen - it’s on again!
Port Coogee’s Annual Christmas Community Day.
Your favourite time of year, at your favourite beach! Once
again, Port Coogee’s Christmas Community Day will bring
the Marina beach and foreshore to life with fantastic family
fun. This year will be bigger and better than ever – a real
community party with music, children’s activities and games,
pony rides and face painting, a bouncy castle, water sports,
food stalls and more! There’ll also be a VERY special guest
from the North Pole, so celebrate the start of summer Port
Coogee-style and head down to the beach at Medina Parade
on Sunday 8 December, from 11am until 2pm.
Australand and In-Vogue Homes – Perth’s two-storey home
specialists – have teamed up to offer the opportunity to
move in to a beautiful, fully ﬁnished two storey home just 30
metres from the beach. These stunning two-storey homes
(there will be nine in all) will be part of an exclusive, secure
and private development at one of Port Coogee’s most
prime positions. Located on the corner of Socrates Parade
and Condor Way, the homes will include three bedrooms,
two bathrooms, open-plan living areas, and double garages
providing secure direct access into the home. Look out for
them in the coming months – they’ll be snapped up quickly!
For more information or to register an expression of interest

4 | Development Update
At Australand, we’re not just developing beautiful places
to live; we’re also creating safe, connected communities.
To help ensure Port Coogee continues to be a safe,
harmonious environment for residents and visitors, we
have been working with the City of Cockburn to install
closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras throughout the
Marina (including the Marina beach area) and soon at
the northern public car park off Caledonia Loop. This
will link Port Coogee’s existing community CCTV system
to CoSafe (Cockburn Safety and Security Service),
providing 24/7 surveillance.
Yoga with Joy
You loved it last summer, so it’s back!
Joy is now taking one-hour Hatha Yoga
classes at the marina beach on Sunday
mornings from 7.30-8.30am.
Now is an ideal time to start getting into shape and feeling
great for summer, and what better place could there be outdoors in the fresh air against the magical backdrop of the
marina and beach.
“It’s a lovely way to wake up the body and get focused for
the day,” Joy said.
“It’s really worth getting up early and coming down.
We’re so lucky to have such a beautiful location; we get the
sun coming up over the hills, the beach behind us and we’re
often blessed with the presence of dolphins coming to watch!”
Because Australand is keen to encourage outdoor ﬁtness
at Port Coogee, we’ve kept the cost to just $2 per class,
but bookings are essential – so call Joy on 0412 229 931.
Classes are planned to break on December 18 for the
Christmas holidays, but depending on demand, could
continue throughout the summer months.
Cockburn Sea Rescue – a vital coastal service
Boating is a big part of the lifestyle at Port Coogee, and as
part of our commitment to safety at sea, Australand is proud
to sponsor Cockburn Volunteer Sea Rescue (CVSR). As
the group is virtually self-funding, the sponsorship is vital in
assisting to keep their boats on the water.
CVSR operates thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers,
who are available with rescue craft and salvage pumps 24
hours a day, seven days a week. Their area of operation is
huge – roughly from the old South Fremantle power station
in the north, south to the Kwinana Grain Terminal, and as far
out to sea as a rescue takes them – an area of about 1,000
square kilometres. Working closely with the Water Police,
they answer hundreds of callouts a year. Commander Mike
Graham says rescues have increased considerably in the last
couple of years, including assisting several vessels from the
Port Coogee Marina.
“We’ve gone from an average of around 130 rescues a year
to over 200, with around 600 people being safely returned to
shore,” Mr Graham said.
“We are very grateful for the generous sponsorship from
Australand, and invite all boat owners at Port Coogee to
register with us and become afﬁliate members.
“We also strongly advise them to log a sail plan with us before
Cockburn Volunteer Sea Rescue Group can be contacted on
9410 1544 or 0409 103 029.
Australand covers the backs
of Cockburn umpires
As part of our sponsorship with Cockburn Netball Club, all umpires now have
smart new tops featuring the Australand and Port Coogee logo on the back.

Take Five...with Justin French
Justin and Hayley French were one of the ﬁrst
families at Port Coogee, moving in just over three
years ago. They have now bought another block
closer to the marina, where Justin moors his boat.
He takes ﬁve to explain why he loves where he lives.
I ﬁrst chose to buy in Port Coogee because....We wanted
to live close to the ocean, somewhere with ocean views, and
be able to moor our boat within walking distance of our home.
Port Coogee ticks all the boxes on our wish list. We have now
purchased our second block here, and are just ﬁnalising our
new house plans.
What I love most about living at Port Coogee is....
The marina plays a big part of our lifestyle, as well as the kiddy
beach, which we utilise a lot during summer with our almost
three year-old daughter Sienna, who calls it “Sienna’s Beach’’.
The bike paths are great, and it’s an easy ride into Freo. Also,
with the Dome café opening later this year, it will be a real
bonus to be able to walk down for a coffee and meal.
Something you may not know about Port Coogee is....
Summer evenings are priceless - the marina is becoming a
haven for budding photographers getting shots of the sunset
with the marina in the foreground. Even I have a great photo
of a Port Coogee marina sunset that is proudly displayed on
my laptop screensaver.
Get on board
At Australand, we endeavour to keep the ever-growing,
ever-evolving database of the Port Coogee community
up-to-date through letterbox drops, emails and SMS
messages, and the tri-annual newsletter ‘Our Place’
that you are reading now. We’ve also recently installed a
Community Noticeboard outside the Sales and Information
Centre, with details of what’s happening in your local area,
general Port Coogee news, upcoming events, ﬂyers and
photos from community events.
Justin and Hayley French with daughter Sienna
My perfect day at Port Coogee is... We always wake up
with great views of the three islands (Garden, Carnac and
Rottnest), so that’s a good start to any day. The perfect day
is calm waters and taking the boat out of the marina across
to Rotto or down to Mandurah for lunch or for the weekend.
Enjoying the time with good friends and family.
In ﬁve years time I’d like to be... Unless I get another
work assignment overseas, we will still be in Port Coogee!
We’ve travelled a lot and lived in cold countries, so we enjoy
the weather and lifestyle of Perth/Freo. Building our second
property in Port Coogee and moving a few streets closer
to the marina means we will not be going far...but hopefully
working less days a week to enjoy the lifestyle!
Getting to know your
Port Coogee neighbours
Many of you will have already attended one of our Residents
Community Nights; three of which have been held over the
past few months at the Australand Sales Ofﬁce.
These are informal and friendly gatherings designed to get
people living in neighbouring streets together over wine,
nibbles and conversation, while being updated on the latest
exciting plans for Port Coogee.
If your street hasn’t had one yet – keep an eye out, there will
be more during 2014!
If you have any promotional material you’d like posted on
the noticeboard, please email details to Deborah Thomas
at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Trent at the

More awards for Port Coogee
More proof that Port Coogee is a winning estate!
2013 UDIA WA
Award for Urban
Australand’s commitment to
was further acknowledged
after Port Coogee received
the Urban Water Excellence
Award at the recent 2013 UDIA
WA State Awards for Excellence.
The Port Coogee team won the award for turning the
challenge of nutrient-enriched groundwater into an
opportunity, by intercepting the groundwater and using it
for watering public open spaces and residential gardens,
via a ‘third pipe’. This solution not only reduced the risk of
poor water quality and algal blooms in the marina, it reduced
potable water consumption in the residential development by
using the ﬁltered groundwater.
The UDIA Judges also cited Port Coogee’s water sensitive
landscaping, stormwater inﬁltration and in-house water efﬁciency
as initiatives worthy of this winning this prestigious award.
CCAA Public Domain Awards 2013
Port Coogee was also a winner at the state Cement, Concrete
and Aggregate Australia Public Domain Awards. This was a
fantastic win, and was the only award handed out in WA – all
the other gongs went to Sydney and Melbourne projects.
The award was for the newly completed stages of the Marina
Village Stage 1, the beach and the water playground, and
recognised the expressive way our designers incorporated a
diverse range of treatments into the landscape of the public
open spaces. The treatments ensured the spaces remain
appealing while being a key feature of the structural design.
Judges said “the quality of workmanship is demonstrable in
the tactility of form and texture in the play and formal elements
alike. It is a disciplined project that also enables an expressive
play environment for children and adults.”
Big congratulations to all involved!
Congratulations to all involved, in particular to Julian, Danielle,
Julia and Trent for the continued commitment to driving the
residents’ understanding and usage of the third pipe system –
without people embracing the system, the asset would remain
an underutilised environmental beneﬁt.
For Port Coogee residents wanting to connect to the third
pipe system, call the Australand ofﬁce on 9214 7900 and we
will get it sorted for you.

With the spring weather ﬁnally here, we all look forward
to more active days in the sunshine. This brings with
it outdoor enjoyment for all the family, and what better
way to celebrate than to organise an afternoon of fun at
your local park or beach. Looking for opportunities to
include activity and exercise to this past time is the way
forward to a happier, healthier lifestyle.
With both State & Federal elections decided, we can all
form a clearer perspective on the future of our Country.
The past few months have seen positive signs in the
property market with active sales turn over. This sits well
for housing construction which is one of our states key
economic drivers. Consumer conﬁdence is running at
the highest levels in some years and retail spending is
on the up.
As we head into the summer months, I wish you and
your family a safe and enjoyable festive season and a
prosperous new year.
