Wattleup is a southern suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Cockburn. Since 2001, it has been part of the Hope Valley-Wattleup Redevelopment Project,[2] which has meant the demolition of most of the houses in the area for future industry. Wattleup had many market gardens in the past. They provided agricultural produce for the town of Fremantle.
