Things to do: fun & games
Cannington is a southern suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Its local government area is the City of Canning.HistoryCannington's name derives from the Canning River, which forms part of the southwestern boundary of the suburb. It was first subdivided in 1882, and a railway station was constructed in the 1890s opposite Station Street in (now) East Cannington.WaverleyFor many years the areas of Cannington, East Cannington and Beckenham were known locally as "Waverley" and many Buildings and Businesses used the name Waverley to designate their locality, such as the Waverley Hotel, the Waverley Drive In Cinema, Waverley Fish n Chips, etc. The origin of the alternative use of Waverley is designated to the Cecil Gibbs who first used it in naming the Waverley Hotel that was a distinctive landmark over many generations. Between 1860 and 1883 William Lacey Gibbs, gradually accumulated most of what is Cannington. His slaughter yards were located near the present day Myer Department Store, Westfield. His brother built the 'Cecil/Waverley' Hotel on the corner of Cecil Road and Albany Highway (Carden, 1968). The hotel was altered many times over the years and was recently demolished for widening of the Albany Highway.GeographyCannington is bounded by Nicholson Road to the southeast, the Armadale railway line to the northeast, Mills and Burton Streets to the northwest, and Fleming Avenue and the Canning River to the southwest. Albany Highway runs through the western part of the suburb.
