Image of Mural in Doubleview

The local community describes Doubleview as caring, diverse and friendly neighbourhood. To better understand what is means to be ‘a local’ our suburb profile seeks to understand the local stories Koora (past), Yeyi (present), Boordawan (future) and respond to Ngalang Maya (our place). This snapshot identifies the unique character of Doubleview’s neighbourhood and helps the City rethink how we deliver services with a local focus. 

Doubleview was named for its views of both the Indian Ocean and the Darling Ranges, but development was slow until returning World War Two soldiers were given homes in the area. Find out more about Doubleview, including residential and community development.

Local focus

The City has created Locally-led Stirling to drive deeper connection at a local suburb level to listen and respond with a local focus.  At the heart of this Locally-led approach is an understanding that local people know what they need and a vision for everyone to get involved in shaping what it means to be “a local”.

We want to bring neighbours together, invest in local stories and inspire opportunities to work together. To find out more about Locally-led Stirling, visit Shaping our City

If you are looking for ways to get involved in your local area, please contact one of the City’s Local Engagement Officers by emailing getinvolved@stirling.wa.gov.au.

Local plans

Residential development

In 1916, developer M. L. Connor subdivided the southern portion of Doubleview, although once again blocks were slow to sell, and developers Dudley and Dwyer acquired the unsold lots in both parts of Doubleview in 1926. While they created the name for the area in an attempt to attract interest, development did not begin to accelerate until the government began providing returned soldiers homes in the northern section of Doubleview after World War Two.

Single detached dwellings dominate Doubleview but there are some scattered unit and duplex developments. Much of the area contains post-war housing, a significant proportion of which was constructed by the government, and many of the original dwellings are of timber-frame construction, with more recent developments using brick and tile. Some parts of the southern section of Doubleview contain examples of 1960s and international-style housing.

Public open space and community infrastructure

There are seven local open spaces and one community open space in Doubleview that offer both active and passive recreation, including Bennett Park and John K. Lyon Reserve. While Doubleview Primary School serves the educational needs of younger students in the area.

Doubleview also offers spectacular views from Ewen Street and the water tower on Princess Street, which is visible from all parts of the surrounding region.

Westfield Innaloo is the nearest major retail outlet, supplemented by older retail strips along Sackville Terrace and Scarborough Beach Road.
