A large portion of the suburb is composed of remnant agricultural land organized as smallholdings of several acres, as well as relatively pristine native wetlands, including the Brixton Street Wetlands which are of significant conservation value. It also contains several sites of historical significance relating to its status as one of the early farming communities of the Swan River Colony.

Lawn bowls, tennis courts, a skate park, a library and community centre, and an oval for cricket and football are all available for community usage. A significant sporting complex incorporating most of these activities is located at Mills Park in the north-west of the suburb.
