Lockridge is a suburb of Perth, in the Bassendean division of Western Australia, and the City of Swan local government area. Its name is derived from that of a Swan Valley property owned by the Hamersley family, Lockeridge. Part of what is now Lockridge, which became the Pyrton Estate, was bought by the Western Australian government during the Soldier settlement scheme in the 1920s. In 1969, the State Housing Commission purchased 240 acres (97 ha) to begin residential development in the area.Lockridge was originally owned by prominent Western Australian landowner, Edward Hamersley in 1837. The suburb takes its name from Lockeridge House, which was built by his son, Samuel, in 1874. However, it wasn’t until 1969 that residential development took place, with urban renewal occurring in the late 1990s.
At the 2016 Australian Census the suburb had a population of 3,467.Local amenities include Rosher Park, Kiara College, Lockridge Primary School, and the Alice Daveron Community Centre. The Swan Valley Nyungah Community was in the area.
