Adjacent to Greenwood, Carine and Sorrento, approx 15 kms north of the city, this suburb was established in the mid-1970's. The name Duncraig is Scottish, as are many street names in the suburb. Duncraig was the developer's promotional label and this title prevailed probably though common usage and was officially adopted in 1969. Duncraig covers a fairly large area. The section to the south of Warwick Road is aptly known as South Duncraig

Duncraig - Glengarry Tavern First Choice

Here we are six months on and any trace of the old Glengarry Tavern has gone, apart from the general building outline. Now it's First Choice Liquor Store, part of the Coles group. It's only been open for 2 weeks and it's all sparkling inside. June 2013. Photos Ref: DUNC004

Duncraig - Marri Road Complex

These multi-storey mixed business and residentials are starting to emerge in suburbs around here. They actually look quite stylish. You can see the Marri Road shop signs off to the left. This is perhaps the first of this type of building to go up in this part of Duncraig. On this site used to be an Ampol garage. November 2017. Photos Ref: DUNC017


Duncraig - Carine Shops Building

Carine Shops are actually located in Duncraig, on the north side of Beach Road and corner of Davallia Avenue. This fine building is only a 2-3 years old. It was constructed on the site of the old BP service station. January 2018. Photos Ref: DUNC018


Duncraig - No Stopping

Running down the west side of the Duncraig Marri Road Shopping Centre is this carpark access road. I am amused by the ambiguity of the road signs. Careful on that crosswalk! January 2018. Photos Ref: DUNC019
