PERTH SUBURB MINDARIE

seclevThis suburb is named after Mindarie Lake, an Aboriginal name first recorded by Alexander Forrest in 1874.

A BRIEF HISTORY

The Aboriginal meaning for the name is possibly "the place near which is held a ceremony".

Another meaning has been given as "green water"

The suburb was to have been named Clarkson prior to development, but the two names were transposed in 1985.

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

Mindarie is a highly populated family area that is very community orientated offering a great lifestyle with the harbour and Clayton's beach close by.

Mindarie is home to one of Australia's largest man made harbours.

You will find a mix of residential property in the suburb, older style single storey homes, modern two storey designs and apartments.

Developments range from big mansions in the Clarecastle Retreat to waterside apartments in the Marina. The Marina is currently being revamped with much residential development happeningt. Mirvac is developing Mindarie with a distinct village-style community in mind.
