Kalamunda is a eastern suburb of Perth located 300mts above sea level in the Darling Ranges. The name Kalamunda is derived from the Noongar language, kala meaning "home" and munda meaning "forest", which is how the Shire's motto "A home in the forest" came about.

Once a thriving logging town, Kalamunda is now known for it's fruit orchards and also it's arts and crafts. The area is also rich in Australian history going back to it's logging days.
