The suburb is less than 10 km away from the Perth CBD and is a 15-minute drive to Trigg beach. Previously known as a lower income area, Nollamara has gone through a period of gentrification over the past decade that continues on to this day. Older homes are being replaced with new townhomes and there has been a surge in young families and professionals populating the suburb.
Nollamara borders prominent areas such as Yokine and Dianella that are host to multi-million dollar homes. This has added to the appeal of Nollamara to new residents as it enjoys much lower housing costs yet is only a stone throw away from more exclusive areas. It also enjoys large parks and open spaces and is known for its extensive amount of trees that line the streets. A newly developed Flinders street and Wanneroo Road provide easy access to Leederville, Subiaco, Northbridge and the Perth CBD. The drive to Leederville, a trendy area full of cafes and restaurants is less than 10 minutes away.
The suburb is served by a number of Transperth bus routes operated by Transdev Perth, Swan Transit and Path Transit.
