About Edgewater
Its location on the western banks of Lake Joondalup earned Edgewater its name. This suburb belongs to the City of Joondalup in Edgewater, Western Australia.

Access to Edgewater can be made through the Edgewater Train Station located close to Joondalup Drive. The suburb is also served by several TransEdgewater bus routes to and from Joondalup. Joondalup Drive, itself, borders Edgewater to the west while Ocean Reef Road provides access south of the suburb. Its location also makes it closer to the Yellagonga Regional Park located around the lake and to the east of Edgewater.

Edgewater is described by locals as a quiet and secluded suburb. It is also referred to as the "unknown diamond" for being a rare gem in such a quiet area but relatively "unknown" due to the absence of main roads traversing it. Because of its location right on the edge of the lake, Edgewater is home to numerous species of local wildlife and has plenty of beautiful sceneries so that those who come to visit often wish they could live there. In fact, most of the people who moved in the suburb rarely move out.

A residential suburb, Edgewater has a variety of homes to offer to its future residents. In fact, all types of homes are available to prospect residents - from small, budget homes ideal for first time buyers and small families to large, exclusive homes offering spectacular views of the lake.

Residents can find plenty of options for shopping centers in Edgewater - its own Edgewater Shopping Center as well as shopping centers in the neighboring Whitfords City and Lakeside Joondalup.

Most of Edgewater's young pupils go to Edgewater Public Primary School though some attend school at St. Luke's Private Primary School in Woodvale. Likewise, most older students receive their education at the Mater Dei Private Catholic College within the suburb while others go to the nearby Woodvale Senior High School
