Suburb Information

Atwell Description

Atwell is a suburb in the south east section of the Town of Cockburn. This name was taken from a pioneer family of the area who had owned land there for many years. The Atwell brothers owned several livery stables in Fremantle around the turn of the century and it was Ernest Atwell who took over the Conditional Purchase Lease of Jandakot Agricultural Area Lot 209, located in the area.
