Karrinyup is a suburb of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, and is located 12 km north of Perth's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Stirling. It is home to one of Perth's largest shopping complexes, Karrinyup Shopping Centre.HistoryThe name Karrinyup was originally derived from the word Careniup, a Noongar name for a nearby swamp which means "the place where bush kangaroos graze". In the 1840s, Samuel Moore took up a grant of 780acre in the northern part of the suburb. Moore's grant, Swan Location 92 was surveyed by P Chauncey in 1844 and Chauncey recorded a large swamp just to the east of Karrinyup as Careniup Swamp.In 1929, the foundation committee developing the Lake Karrinyup Country Club golf course opted to change the spelling.While the area had been subdivided by Charles Stoneman in 1904 and roads built, the country club remained the only significant feature in the area, and rapid growth did not begin until 1957, with the part south of Karrinyup Road developing first. At this stage, the only access to the area from Perth was via Wanneroo Road and Balcatta Beach Road. The building of the Mitchell Freeway to Karrinyup Road in 1983-84 facilitated the growth of Karrinyup and nearby Stirling as a regional hub.
