Nollamara is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Its local government area is the City of Stirling.

The name "Nollamara" is the Aboriginal word for the plant known as the Black Kangaroo Paw.

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.

Transport[edit]

The suburb is served by a number of Transperth bus routes operated by Transdev Perth, Swan Transit and Path Transit. The 354, 370 and 870 (Mirrabooka-Perth) covers Flinders Street and inner portions of the Suburb, the 389 (Wanneroo-Perth) and the 386 (Marangaroo-Perth) covers Wanneroo Road south to Perth, the 371 (Warwick-Mirrabooka) and 415 (Stirling-Mirrabooka) covers Ravenswood Drive in North.
