What’s in a name, Calista : the origins of our local street names

Where do our street names come from?  The origins of street names can tell us a lot about our local history, and the people and events that shaped our suburbs.

Many of the streets in Calista are named after the passengers who migrated on the ship bearing the same name, arriving at the Swan River Colony on the 5th August, 1829.  Many of their descendants still live in the surrounding suburbs today.
