Joondalup ECU

The Joondalup area was mostly developed after 1990. The Edith Cowan University campus occupies a large tract of land in the southern section of the suburb. The campus was constructed to cater for the massive population growth in the northern suburbs and therefore student demographic changes. ECU also has another campus at Mount Lawley. The ECU Churchlands campus was decommissioned some years ago and various schools were transferred here

Joondalup ECU - Edith Cowan's Cottage

Edith Cowan's Cottage was relocated from 71 Malcolm Street in Perth to this campus. The Cowan's lived at 71 Malcolm Street for about 20 years from 1919. I must say it looks pretty much at home amongst the pines and beside the lake. June 2008. Photos Ref: JECU004
