Community, care and connection comes alive at Mankara where you can open your door to a hub of community activities, shopping precincts, essential services, lush parklands and major transport routes.
Helen’s Cafe is a warm, inviting and relaxed space and has all the ingredients for friendship and laughter over fresh cake and hot coffee.
Located on the ground floor, it is yours to enjoy everyday.
The café connects the community in a caring way as homage to Helen Moore, one of Southcare’s longest-standing volunteers and founder of Southcare in 1982.
Community, care and connection is at the very heart of our purpose, which is why we have created a special space for you: the Mankara Garden Terrace.
Because you are part of the community, it is open to you to relax, recharge and re-connect. Invite your book club crew, start a sewing circle, create a bridge club or organise a birthday celebration with your friends, family and neighbours.
The Mankara Garden Terrace gives you an opportunity to connect with the space to do it all, quite literally on your doorstep.
You’re spoilt for choice at Mankara, with almost a quarter of the City of South Perth’s land area classified as parks and gardens. You’ll find Neil McDougall Park, Sir James Mitchell Park and George Burnett Park within metres from your home and our famous Swan River is also nearby.
Mankara is within easy reach of several community shopping facilities including the popular and local Welwyn Avenue and Ley Street precincts in Manning.
Waterford Plaza is just 2.5km away and easily reached by public transport or car. Shopping is easy with Coles and IGA supermarkets, cafes, pharmacies, Australia Post and newsagency services plus a range of specialty stores all at your convenience.
Rest easy knowing help is just around the corner should you ever need it. Medical centres, pharmacies, physiotherapists, dentists and the South Perth Hospital, Fiona Stanley and St John of God Hospital Murdoch are all within easy reach.
Mankara enjoys excellent public transport links being located metres from popular bus routes 100 and 101 and is just a short distance from Canning Bridge Station which offers access to the Perth CBD in 6 minutes and Mandurah in 40 minutes. The Kwinana Freeway, Tonkin Highway and Leach Highway are also moments away.
With Collier Park Golf Club, Como Bowling and Recreation Club, Manning Eagles Bowling Club, Manning Tennis Club, Como Croquet, the Manning Hub, Manning Senior Citizens Centre, Manning Men's Shed, Soroptimist International South Perth and the Rotary Club of Como just down the road from Mankara, you won’t have to travel far to enjoy the activities you love.
Keep things social and local when you meet for a coffee, brunch, lunch or dinner date with friends at any of the cafes and restaurants in Manning, Salter Point or at Waterford Plaza. All are just 5 minutes from your home, for those times when you decide to meet somewhere other than Helen’s Cafe, your very own on-site cafe.
