Despite its relatively recent development in the early 1990s, Clarkson has since evolved into a thriving northern suburb of Perth. Home to more than 11,650 people, Clarkson's population grew exponentially between 1991 and 2011 as a large influx of new homes and other dwellings were built. The suburb has a seven square kilometre land area and is part of the City of Wanneroo.
Life in Clarkson
One of Clarkson's major features and an attribute that has contributed to the suburbs growth is the establishment of the Clarkson Railway Station following the extension of the Perth railway line in 2004. Clarkson also has several parks for residents to enjoy, a local shopping centre and a number of schools, such as Clarkson Community High School and Somerly Primary School.
