What’s in a name, Orelia : 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 Orelia represent English castles or passengers on board ships arriving to the Swan River Colony in the early 1800s.
