Karrinyup Suburb Research
About Karrinyup
Karrinyup is a suburb in Karrinyup located just 12 kilometers north of the central business district. Its name was derived from a Noongar word "Careniup" which refers to the nearby swamp which name means "the place where bush kangaroos graze".

When it was first created in 1904, roads were already built along Karrinyup but its only significant feature for several decades thereafter was the Lake Karrinyup Country Club golf course that was built in 1929. It was not until the late 1950s when rapid development created numerous dwellings and buildings.

Today, the suburb is home to the Karrinyup Shopping Centre, considered to be one of the largest shopping complexes in Karrinyup. This shopper's haven not only serves its residents but also those coming from neighbouring suburbs as well. It not only acts as a retail venue but is also home to a library, bus station and community center among others.

Young school children have plenty of school options in Karrinyup - the Karrinyup Primary School, Deanmore Primary School and Newborough Primary School, all state-owned. Female students can also opt to study at the elite private college, St. Mary's Anglican Girls School.

The suburb is divided into several sections - residential, commercial, and either bushland/reserve or part of the two golf courses, Hamersley and Lake Karrinyup. Owing to its late development, most of the homes in Karrinyup are relatively new are often modern, two-story buildings with a range of styles. Trigg and Trigg Bushland Reserve can be found west of Karrinyup while Gwelup and Mitchell Freeway lie east. The suburb of Doubleview is located at its south while Carine can be found up north.
