Located 15km from Perth GPO.

The suburb of Gwelup takes its name from a small swampy lake located in the southern portion of the suburb. The feature is recorded in Lands Department records in 1878 as Gwelup Swamp and in recent years as the surrounds have been cleared and filled, it has been recorded as a lake. The Aboriginal meaning of the name has been derived from ¿Gwelgannow¿ which means to "shift the position" and "step aside" and would therefore probably be "the lake that shifted position".
