About Hamersley
Named after the affluent Hamersley family who came to the Swan River Colony in 1837, Hamersley is the remaining portion of the much larger Hamersley Estate. The family had lived in the area that is now called North Beach while the area where the modern Hamersley is located, had been a remote district filled with various vegetation including jarrah and marri.

Today, Hamersley is mainly a residential suburb with a cul-de-sac design where its main and minor roads are connected by pathways and parks. Thus, plenty of parks, many of which have children's centers and play equipment's, are available for use of its residents. Residents have to travel to neighbouring areas to shop; major shopping options are Centro Warwick Shopping Centre and Karrinyup Shopping Centre.

Warwick is located north of Hamersley while Karrinyup and Gwelup lie southwest. The suburbs of Marmion, North Beach, Watermans Bay and Carine are nearest the beach to the west of Hamersley while Koondoola and Mirrabooka lie east.

There are plenty of major roads traversing or are near Hamersley so that Hamersley, Joondalup, and neighbouring suburbs such as North Beach and Karrinyup are easily accessible.

Primary students from the western portion of Hamersley are served by Glendale Primary School while those from the east attend East Hamersley Primary School. There is, currently, no facility for higher education in Hamersley although it is part of the catchment area for Warwick Senior High School.

Sports enthusiasts can join the junior or amateur clubs that practice and play at the Aintree-Eglinton Reserve. The Hamersley Community Recreation Centre is also located within the reserve.
