Stoneville is a suburb east of Perth in the Shire of Mundaring, Western Australia. It is named after Sir Albert Edward Stone, who was Chief Justice of Western Australia when the place was named in 1905. The name was chosen by the local residents who were developing the district for fruit growing. The town's population is 2,050, with a median age of 36 years and 7.1% of residents aged over 65.

In a bushfire in January 2014 a considerable number of houses were destroyed [2]
