"A Green Land!"

Carmel was once called Green's Landing after Levi Green, a Perth business man who moved into the area in 1844. Later, in 1915, it was renamed when another land owner decided to rename the area Carmel - meaning 'Garden of God'. Both names do accurately reflect the region, with Carmel being a green escape from the main city and a fertile area on the city outskirts. There are many great gardens in the area and the proximity to the hills provides a slightly better climate for growing fruit trees and plants that require more of a chill factor than the rest of the city. There are many larger properties in the area and there are around 200 dwellings. For a suburb on the outskirts there is unusually good school access with the Carmel Adventist Colleges and Mazenod and St Brigids in Lesmurdie.
