Nollamara

Nollamara is a suburb located on the east side of Wanneroo Road bounded in the north by Amelia Street and Ravenswood Drive and in the south by Morley Drive. The locality was developed by the then State Housing Commission in the 1950's along with a few surrounding areas to provide affordable housing. The name Nollamara was decided upon in 1954. It is an Aboriginal word for the Western Australian floral emblem, the red and green kangaroo paw.
