The name "Nollamara" is a Noongar word for the flowering plant Macropidia, commonly known as the black kangaroo paw.[2][3]

The suburb is less than 10 km (6.2 mi) away from the Perth central business district and is approximately 11 km from Trigg beach. Previously known as a lower income area, Nollamara has gone through a period of gentrification over the past decade that continues on to this day. Older homes are being replaced with new townhomes and there has been a surge in young families and professionals populating the suburb. Today, the suburb still maintains multicultural and diverse residents despite undergoing change. The cultural aspect has given the suburb community character it is known for.

Nollamara borders prominent areas such as Yokine and Dianella that are host to multimillion-dollar homes. A newly developed Flinders Street and Wanneroo Road provide easy access to Leederville, Subiaco, Northbridge and the Perth CBD.
