Karrinyup Road is a major east-west road in the inner northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, connecting the City of Stirling council offices, Osborne Park Hospital and Karrinyup Shopping Centre with residential estates in Innaloo, Stirling and Balcatta. The road, especially the portion between the Freeway and Main Street, was one of the first roads in the area, known as Balcatta Beach Road and later as North Beach Road. Until the 1990s, most of this stretch of the road was still fledged by functioning market gardens.

For part of 1984, Karrinyup Road was the end point of the Mitchell Freeway. Prior to the freeway's construction, this intersection was the crossing point of Odin Road between Innaloo and the Balcatta industrial area.

Main Roads Western Australia controls and maintains Karrinyup Road.[1] It is part of Main Roads' internal designation H28 Karrinyup–Morley Highway, along with Morley Drive.[2]
