Karrinyup is a suburb of Perth located east of Trigg and North Beach, north of Doubleview, and south of Carine. It is approx. 12 kms north-west of Perth City centre. Back in the 1840's, the northern part of this area was known as "Moore's Grant", after Samuel Moore who then owned 780 acres there. Surveyor P. Chauncey named the local swamp Careniup Swamp in 1844. Following the establishment of the golf course in 1920, Careniup was changed to Karrinyup
