Canning Vale is a large southern suburb of Perth 20 km from the Perth CBD. Its local government areas are the City of Canning (west of Nicholson Road) and the City of Gosnells (east of Nicholson Road).HistoryCanning Vale's name derives from the Canning River, located about 3 km to the suburb's northeast. It was locally known as North Jandakot until 1925.Until the late 1970s Canning Vale was a farming area consisting of mostly market gardens and dairy farms due to its swampy terrain with an unusually high abundance of permanent fresh water. Most of the area which is now residential was zoned rural until 1994 on the Metropolitan Region Scheme.Developers of residential areas have incorporated numerous landscaped lakes into their developments, which serve an important function in draining this swampy area.GeographyCanning Vale is bounded by Warton Road to the southeast, Garden Street and Nicholson Road to the northeast, Roe Highway to the north and northwest, and Clifton and Acourt Roads to the southwest.The suburb is split into three distinct regions. North of the rail line near Roe Highway is an industrial area that has a number of major warehousing operations including Market City, a wholesale fresh produce market. Also in the area are many distribution facilities such as the IGA distribution centre. Swan Brewery, ACI Packaging and BGC all operate manufacturing plants in the area. South of the line is residential with the normal shopping areas. The western edge of the suburb, contained within a nature reserve, is the Hakea Prison complex.Canning Vale is in Canning.
