Thornlie is a large outer suburb of Perth, located 18 km southeast of the city’s CBD. The Canning River runs through the northern side of the suburb. The name Thornlie was derived from a farm “Thornlie Park”, established in 1884 by Frank and Amy James, Amy being a niece of Walter Padbury who financed the property. Thornlie was established as a residential suburb in the late 1950s.
