Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kalamunda is a town and eastern suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located in the Darling Scarp at the eastern limits of the Perth metropolitan area. The word is derived from two Noongar (an Indigenous Australian language) words: kala meaning "home" and munda meaning "forest," hence spawning the Shire's motto "A home in the forest." At 300m above sea level, Kalamunda and the surrounding areas experience colder night temperatures than the bulk of the Perth Metropolitan area to the west. Deep clay soils in the valleys in this area provide ideal growing conditions for stone fruits, apples and pears, wine production and for a small commercial rose growing industry.show more
