Edgewater is about 23 kilometres north of the Perth CBD. Edgewater was approved as a suburb name in 1974 due to its location on the western shores of Lake Joondalup. Its local government area is the City of Joondalup. Edgewater is an established residential area with light industry in the south-west.
Edgewater is bounded by Eddystone Avenue, Joondalup Drive, Lakeside Drive and the suburb of Joondalup in the north, Lake Joondalup in the east, Ocean Reef Road in the south and the Mitchell Freeway in the west.
