About Kallaroo
Named in 1970 after an Aboriginal term which means "road to the water", the suburb of Kallaroo was aptly named as it is indeed located close to the ocean. This suburb was created as one of the four suburbs to comprise the Whitfords metropolitan area, a section created after large areas of coastal lands have been rezoned for development.

Kallaroo has a unique system of naming its streets as most of these are named after shipwrecks, including "Batavia" which is the one of the famous West Australian shipwrecks.

A residential suburb, Kallaroo is served by the Springfield Primary School. This school is the only educational facility within Kallaroo which was named after the original housing estate in the area. Older students can easily travel to neighbouring suburbs for higher education with popular options like Padbury Senior High School in Padbury and the Mater Dei College in Edgewater.

There really is not much to see within Kallaroo. Dwellings are scattered all over the suburb but there exists a housing estate named Northshore at its west portion. It is sometimes considered an independent suburb though it is actually part of Kallaroo.

The Indian Ocean and Northshore Drive borders Kallaroo to the west while Marmion Avenue and Craigie can be found at its east side. Hillarys is located south of the suburb while Beldon and Padbury are at the northeast and southeast sides, respectively. The City of Joondalup, northeast of Kallaroo, is just a few minutes' drive away and can be reached through Mitchell Freeway.
