About Wembley Downs
With substantial parklands and a well-planned community, Wembley Downs is an ideal neighborhood located only 9 kilometers from central Wembley Downs. Its name is derived from the local golf course, which was then named after the Wembley suburb.

Early settlement in Wembley Downs dates back to 1842. The suburb slowly developed in the 1900s, with remarkable growth during the 50s and 60s. Residences in Wembley Downs are mostly single houses contained in large individual lots. Duplexes are also popular in the suburb. Many of the homes are constructed from bricks and follow varying architectural styles from the 50s to the present.

Wembley Downs is inhabited by a multi-cultural population that includes migrants from the UK, South Africa, New Zealand, USA and scattered parts of Asia. Residents have access to the main commercial and retail center called "The Downs", found north on Weaponess Road.

Newman College Doubleview Campus, Hale School and Wembley Downs Primary School serve the residents of Wembley in their educational needs. Located on Hale Road northeast of Wembley Downs, Hale School is actually a popular landmark in the suburb offering private education exclusively for boys.
