Woodlea is a fully integrated masterplanned community by Victoria Investments and Properties (VIP) and Mirvac, designed to provide wonderful homes as well as opportunities including employment, education, retail, commercial and community services.

Spanning 711 hectares, Woodlea is a major asset for the West, comprising prestigious schools, ‘destination style’ playgrounds, parks and sporting facilities and is home to a large-scale Town Centre with a Coles. Woodlea is currently home to 14,500 residents and upon completion, will effectively be a ‘mini-city in the suburbs’ with approximately 25,000 residents.

Woodlea is the largest masterplanned community in Australia to achieve all six EnviroDevelopment accreditation ‘leaves’. This demonstrates high-level performance in the areas of ecosystems, water, energy, waste, materials, and community.

Approximately 30 per cent of the site has been earmarked for public open space, incorporating an extensive network of walking and cycling paths.

A commitment to environmental preservation is evident in sensitive landscaping design, to rehabilitate habitat areas around the Kororoit Creek corridor, Deanside Wetlands, and protected river red gum forest. Woodlea is proud to be the first developer to partner with the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) in the procurement of the very first purpose-built wetland habitat for the protected growling grass frog.

Woodlea is ahead of its rehabilitation and conservation program with more than 30,000 trees already planted across the masterplan, with annual community events aimed to encourage residents to help see this number grow.

Woodlea is also proud to be carrying out significant works to preserve our community’s heritage, through the restoration of the historic ruins of the Rockbank Inn. Once complete, the heritage-listed site will be stabilised and made safe for the public to visit the ruins.
