It was previously known as Buckingham, it once shared a "common usage" name of Waverley with East Cannington, and has one of the oldest and most well respected primary schools in Western Australia.[3] The Canning River runs along the southwestern outskirts of Beckenham. In 2011 Beckenham released many new divisions of land.
