Wattle Grove is a recent residential area. Wattle
Grove is bounded by the South Western Motorway in the north, Derna Road in the east, the railway line in the south and Anzac Creek in the west.
Development of the area dates primarily from the early 1990s, on what was part of the Holsworthy Military Reserve. Rapid growth took place between 1991 and 1996, with growth slowing from 1996. The population declined marginally between 2001 and 2006, a result of stability in dwelling stock and a decline in average household size. Major features of the area include Village Plaza Shopping Centre, The Lake and one school.
