Ashby is a suburb of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia 26 kilometres (16 mi) north of Perth's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Wanneroo.

The suburb came into being in the late 1990s as a subdivision of Wanneroo, and was named in 1997 after a local landowner, Mr E E Ashby, who owned land in the area in 1913.


Ashby is a triangular suburb and is bounded by Wanneroo Road to the southwest, Pinjar Road to the southeast and Conti Road to the north. About 40% of the suburb has been developed for residential purposes.
