Situated 8km from the Perth GPO.

Subdivided and developed by the Christian Brothers of Clontarf who submitted a list of Irish street names for the area in December 1979. The South Perth City Council, concerned over the incongruity of such names in a suburb with an Aboriginal name (Karawara), enquired whether it was intended to apply a separate name to the Christian Brother's Estate. The developers suggested renaming the area south of Manning Road 'Waterford' after a property near Dublin, where Edmund Rice (founder of the Christian Brothers) was born. This was approved in December 1980.
