About Marmion
The beautiful coastal suburb of Marmion was named after a master whaler, Patrick Marmion, who operated in the area in as early as the 1840s. This famed whaler also has a monument at Geneff Park located in Padbury Circle, Sorrento. Popular to fisherfolks and whalers, there were plenty of boatsheds, shacks, and a whaling station in the area by the 1930s.

A portion of the suburb located close to Cliff Street was developed beginning in 1961 while the remaining portions saw development from 1973 to 1976.

Today, Marmion is a modern affluent residential suburb well known for the Marmion Marine Park featuring numerous species of marine life. Residents join the Marmion Angling and Aquatic Club to enjoy fishing and boating along Marmion Beach.

As a residential suburb, Marmion has to rely on neighbors for shopping centres. Residents and tourists have to travel to shop at Centro Warwick, Karrinyup Shopping Centre, and Marmion Village Shopping Centre located in Sheppard Way.

Two bus routes - 423 and 441 - serve the suburb. Marmion is easily accessible as it is bounded by several main roads: Marmion Avenue to the east, Beach Road to the south, West Coast Drive to the west, and Marine Terrace to the north. The Indian Ocean is located on the west side of the suburb. Its immediate neighbors are Sorrento, Watermans Bay, Carine, and Duncraig.

Young school children in Marmion are served by only one school, Marmion Primary School which is a public school that caters kindergarten to year 7. The suburb falls under the catchment area of Carine Senior High School.
