Going by this I think we should be safe, but I'm going to send them an email just in case as their data is used for quite a lot of the Australian suburb/town articles on here. -- Meesham 14:29, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)


I decided to split Joondalup as an entity and a 1980s-1990s development project from Joondalup (suburb), its central suburb. There's probably quite a few anomalies left over but I think the end result will be a good one once both articles are completed. For those who don't know, there's an excellent local history section in the Joondalup library on Boas Avenue. Orderinchaos 14:42, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Will this also be done with Rockingham and Fremantle? Outrune (talk) 06:49, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Eventually, yes; also Kwinana. I keep meaning to do a series of articles on the development schemes of the 60s-70s as well, but haven't had the time to do the research necessary to complete them. Orderinchaos 09:53, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Quick question, do you consider the entire Joondalup LGA (both north and south statistical areas) as part of the Joondalup urban centre? Should the southern suburbs be referenced at all in this article? Outrune (talk) 10:51, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
Nope - there's a bit of history to this, but the suburbs south were developed entirely separately. (I really need to have a marathon session at SRO/Battye and Joondalup local history collection sometime and finish all these articles - a lot of this stuff is floating around in my head rather than in print anywhere online...)
  • Warwick + Greenwood + Duncraig were part of the Hamersley Development Scheme which originated with the state government in the late 60s.
  • Sorrento + Marmion already existed as coastal communities and simply grew naturally. There was an attempt to have a Marmion Development Scheme (with skyscrapers about where the McDonalds on Marmion/Burragah now stands!) but it languished for years then got dropped because Hamersley and Whitford had diminished its usefulness.
  • Hillarys + Padbury + Craigie + Kallaroo were part of the Whitford Development Scheme from the early 70s (1971 I think?)
  • Mullaloo + Beldon + southern Ocean Reef + part of Heathridge were part of the Mullaloo Development Scheme from around 1973-74, although coastal Mullaloo already existed in some form. (There's some fun history in the naming of Beldon, I think I put it in the article but can't remember)
  • A Joondalup master plan was put into place at some point (State Government? council? not sure) but was very slow to develop. (I'd love to try and find this - it's probably either at Battye or SRO.) Kinross was not originally part of this plan, it was developed separately, as were the new parts of Burns Beach much later on.
With a complete lack of legal boundaries anywhere (other than the metro boundaries more broadly which can actually be found in legislation) the ABS Joondalup northern area seems a good approximation - all of the areas within it are connected to Joondalup by public transport and road, and it's increasingly becoming the primary shopping hub of the region as well. And it's not WP:OR to use (which is the problem with any other definition) :) Orderinchaos 11:17, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
Great post, thanks. I look forward to reading your articles about these. Outrune (talk) 05:34, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
