Joondalup - History


In 1838, prolific explorer of Western Australia, George Grey set up camp near Lake Joondalup; records show friendly relations with the traditional owners, the Yellagonga mob of the Noongar people. The name 'Joondalup' is a Noongar Aboriginal believed to mean 'place of shining' in reference to Lake Joondalup. Little white settlement occurred, with Joondalup being part of the stock trail frequented by some early settlers, such as the Clarkson brothers and in later years part of a rural and market garden area, feeding Perth. In 1977 Act in Parliament on was proclaimed and in 1979, the Shire of Wanneroo Administration Centre in Joondalup officially opened, followed by the opening of Wanneroo Hospital Joondalup Health Campus in 1980. By 2002, Joondalup housed the WA Police Academy, the Joondalup Campus of Edith Cowan University; Joondalup Arena; Joondalup Civic Chambers and Public Library; Joondalup Police Station and Courthouse; Joondalup Country Club and Golf Course as well as schools and major shopping centres.
