“This suburb of Perth West Australia was named in 1901 following a request by 32 residents of the area for a townsite to be declared here. The residents chose the name “CALAMUNDA” as the name of the proposed townsite, combining two Aboriginal words recorded in a book on Aboriginal language by Bishop Salvado. “Cala” signifies “home, district, settlement,” and “Munda” signifies “forest” and the residents hoped it would be considered an appropriate name. The name was respelt ‘Kalamunnda’ by the Surveyor General, but later in 1901 was amended to Kalamunda."
