Development of Ferndale commenced in 1964 and the City of Canning proposed to name the area Shearnstead after an early landowner. The alternative name "Ferndale", coined by developers, was approved as the suburb name in 1965.

Situated 14km South-East of Perth City, with a population of approximately 4832, Ferndale offers a unique lifestyle. With the tranquil surroundings of the natural protected parklands, its residents are spoilt by having nature at their doorstep. One can enjoy the flora and fauna without having to travel the distance. Shopping centres and schools are in close proximity. This is Paradise in Suburbia.
