Innaloo is a suburb of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia 9 km from Perth’s central business district in the local government area is the City of Stirling.
Innaloo is a more established residential suburb that is also home to the Westfield Innaloo and Westfield Innaloo Megacentre shopping centres, and is adjacent to Perth’s largest cinema complex, the 18-cinema Greater Union Megaplex Innaloo.
Innaloo was originally named “Njookenbooroo”, a local Noongar Aboriginal name for a nearby swamp. This name was too difficult to pronounce or spell, and in 1927, the local progress association asked welfare worker and anthropologist Daisy Bates to compile a list of words and names. The name of an Aboriginal woman from Dongara was chosen for the area. It is much beloved of comedians making fun of place names, along with the suburb of Upper Swan. However, all attempts at changing the name from Innaloo have so far failed.
Innaloo is served by bus links to Stirling train station on the Joondalup Line, including the 410, 412, 421, 424 and the 98/99 CircleRoute, and the 423 and 425 along the Karrinyup Road boundary. Additionally, the 990 services link Scarborough and the Glendalough railway station along Innaloo’s southern boundary. Innaloo’s location next to the rail line makes it one of the best served areas for public transport in Perth.
Prior to the construction of the Stirling railway station as part of the Northern Suburbs Transit System, a possible deviation of the rail alignment was considered to directly service the suburb and its shopping district including Westfield Innaloo. However, this idea was rejected by both the project and the public at large due to the significant cost, lack of identifiable benefits, and environmental impact grounds.
Innaloo is bounded by Karrinyup Road to the north, Huntriss Road to the west, Scarborough Beach Road to the south and Mitchell Freeway and the future line of Stephenson Avenue to the east. The majority of the suburb is residential, apart from the shopping areas in the south-east, several small parks and an undeveloped portion to the east of Ellen Stirling Boulevard. Some of the undeveloped area next to Stirling station has been developed as a commercial area centred on a new IKEA store.
At the ABS 2006 census, Innaloo had a mostly middle-income population of 6,470 people. Most homes are single detached homes of timber-frame construction built around World War II, but some duplexes and recently built units also exist. A number of elderly homes including Geneff Village, named for Sorrento businessman and philanthropist George Geneff (who also built the Nookenburra Hotel), are located within the suburb.
The CBD and surrounding suburbs offer a number of flourishing retail precincts. The Queensland Street Mall has the Wintergarden, Broadway on the Mall, QueensPlaza, Brisbane Arcade, Queen Adelaide Building, Tattersalls Arcade and the Myer Centre. Edward Street is home to several luxury fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany and Co, Hermes, Gucci, Bally and more.
Innaloo contains the Westfield Innaloo shopping centre. Next to Westfield Innaloo on Ellen Stirling Boulevard is the Westfield Innaloo Megacentre (acquired from Centro in August 2006), which contains 20 stores and a Spud Shed (Formerly a Progressive Supa IGA, and before that an Action). Across Scarborough Beach Road is the Greater Union Megaplex. The northern part of the suburb also contains a small local shopping area in Morris Place. Opposite the Megacenter, an IKEA has been constructed, replacing the smaller store a kilometre away in the adjoining suburb of Osborne Park.
Innaloo’s southern border with Woodlands hosts Perth’s largest cinema complex, the 18-cinema Greater Union Megaplex Innaloo, which contains Gold Class cinemas, as well as an arcade with numerous restaurants and dining speciality outlets, including Sizzler, Han’s Cafe, Bollywood Resto Bar and Retro Betty’s, and a game centre (centred on Timezone). It started off life as an MGM drive-in in the 1950s, then was rebuilt by Greater Union in 1990 with 8 screens, then expanded to a Megaplex – the first in Western Australia – in 1996.
