About Currambine
Currambine is an Aboriginal word which means "heaps of rocks". This name was chosen by the City of Wanneroo when it decided to create a suburb in 1980 although this suburb was officially established in the 1990s. Currambine was created as a residential community considered to be a classic mortgage belt suburb.

As a residential suburb, Currambine is comprised mostly of dwellings catering to three major occupational types - professionals and managers, clerical and service workers, and labourers and tradespersons.

Although Currambine by itself does not have much tourist attractions, residents and visitors can visit Doncaster Park for outdoor activities. Residents go to the south western portion of the suburb to shop at the Currambine Market Place shopping center. A portion of the suburb is also home to 5 holes out of the 27 belonging to Joondalup Golf Course. For larger shopping centers, cinemas and tourist attractions, Joondalup can be reached within a few minutes' drive from the suburb.

Young learners have the choice to go to either the public CurrambinePrimary School or the private Currambine Catholic Primary School. Older students, meanwhile, may attend at the Ocean Reef Senior High School. The suburb is also home to the WA School of Japanese Swordsmanship. College students, on the other hand, can acquire further education outside Currambine such as at the Prendiville Catholic College in Ocean Reef and the Mater del College in Edgewater .

Ocean Reef and Connolly can be found southwards while Joondalup is located southeast of Currambine . Kinross and Tamala Park are some minutes' drive northwest of Currambine while Burns Beach and Iluka are due west, closer to the ocean. Joondalup CBD is just a few minutes away while Currambine is also easily accessible through the highways.
