Mirrabooka is approximately 12 kilometers north of the Perth CBD, and its local government area is the City of Stirling. The early stage of development of the suburb was originally an extension of Girrawheen and Nollamara, then rapidly expanded with the subdivision of bushland, on which housing developments were built.
