The local community describes Mirrabooka as diverse, home and accessible to services. 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 Mirrabooka’s neighbourhood and helps the City rethink how we deliver services with a local focus.

Mirrabooka takes its name from the Aboriginal name for the constellation known as the Southern Cross.

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.

Residential development

Mirrabooka is largely characterised by single detached dwellings on small to medium sized lots. The average block size is 600 m², though lots of up to 890 m² can be found.

Much of the area has been developed, however there are still a small number of vacant lots remaining in the eastern sector of the suburb.

Houses are predominantly of brick and tile construction and are generally single storey.

Public open space and community infrastructure

Mirrabooka is well-provided with 22 local open spaces, one community open space and three district open spaces. The largest reserve being the Mirrabooka Regional Open Space. Recreational facilities include the Stirling Leisure Centres - Herb Graham Recreation Centre, squash courts and the Western Australian Softball Association softball fields.

The Mirrabooka Regional Centre, including Mirrabooka Square Shopping Centre, provides the region with a wide range of goods and services and also offers a significant number of employment opportunities.

The suburb also contains a smaller local shopping centre, called Mirrabooka Village, to supplement the larger retail core.

Three primary schools, one high school and a public library are located in Mirrabooka to serve education requirements.

Beach Alexander Bushland is a local natural area and Mirrabooka Bushland is a regionally significant natural bush forever area.
