Living in Margaret River and your Life at Rapids Landing

Rapids Landing is a private residential estate located in the well known and much loved region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Earning a place among the most environmentally pro-active land developments in WA, the Estate boasts a modern approach to sustainability and design, and provides a family-focused community in which fresh, clean air and native surrounds reminds us of life’s simplest pleasures.  

 Situated just off the Bussell Highway and only 2km from the Margaret River town centre, Rapids Landing is at the heart of the region’s wine country, and only minutes from great local beaches, restaurants, parks, and schools. Among the most popular surfing beaches in the world, Surfer’s Point at Prevelly Beach is internationally recognised for its incredible surfing conditions and lookout views, which has since become home to the annual Drug Aware Margaret River Pro surf competition.

 Within the Estate the beautiful parks and walkways, brilliant native surrounds, and strong sense of community all come together to create both a unique lifestyle, and a place to call home.

Margaret River Schools

Margaret River is a diverse community that celebrates a ‘philosophy of the outdoors’. Surfing, sports, and a hands-on education all contribute to this flourishing region, with schools recognising the importance of teaching environmental initiatives, creative arts and leisure activities, as well as promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for all. 

Rapids Landing Primary School

Opening at the start of 2018 school year, Rapids Landing Primary School is an Independant Public School for Children in Kindergarten to Year 6.

The school’s facilities include 12 general classrooms, three early childhood classrooms, a library, art and craft room, covered assembly area, music room, dental therapy unit and canteen.

"Our core purpose is in educating our students and ensuring every student has the opportunity to be the best they can be". 

Margaret River Montessori School

Situated close to the town centre and surrounded by brilliant native bush, the Margaret River Montessori School is a part of the global Montessori system that delivers an outstanding and unique approach to child learning. The school’s picturesque outlook is a charming setting for the educational program it delivers.

 “Montessori classrooms provide a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural tendency to work. The children’s innate passion for learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, purposeful activities with the guidance of a trained adult. Through their work, the children develop concentration and joyful self-discipline. Within a framework of order, the children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities.”

 Margaret River Primary School

Margaret River Primary School is a level 5 school that has excelled with strong community support, both inside and out of the classroom. The school actively engages with parents and the local community to offer a wide range of learning experiences and emotional development, and promotes a number of specialist areas that complement the core curriculum. These include Music, Art, Indonesian, Media, and Outdoor Ed.

 With regard to the wider community, MRPS encourages sporting pursuits and a back-to-basics lifestyle that reflects the main values of the region, and fosters an appreciation for active living, proficiency, and teamwork.

 Margaret River Senior High School

Margaret River Senior High School is regularly placed among the “top performing schools” in WA, where it is recognised for its exceptional student achievement. The school provides a vibrant learning environment that aims to maximise students’ full potential, while also nurturing and challenging them to be active and responsible members of society.

 Academic pursuits at MRSHS are led by a team of dedicated and experienced staff that encourage individual growth, and help students prepare for life in the world after school.

 Future Projects for Rapids Landing

Rapids Landing is currently in the development stages of having its own public primary school, which is set to open in 2018. As well as this, a proposed village shopping centre will bring an added sense of convenience and exclusivity to the Estate. At present, a network of purposely built walking and cycle paths link residents to the Margaret River town centre, where a variety of shops and restaurants, major supermarkets and community facilities are all within walking distance.  These paths encourage residents to walk to work or to the shops, safely stroll home after a night out, and even walk the kids to school the next day.
