Landsdale is a northern suburb of Perth, Western Australia located within the local government area of the City of Wanneroo. It is mixed use, with residential, commercial and light manufacturing areas.

History

In the late 1990s, Landsdale began to develop from market gardens and small rural lots into residential development. Until 1997–1998, prior to the separation by the City of Wanneroo of the suburbs of Darch and Madeley, Landsdale enclosed a much larger area extending westwards to Wanneroo Road.

It includes a Farmer Jacks supermarket, BWS liquor store, a real-estate agency, a drycleaner, Fish & Chips take-away, Chinese take-away, salon, bakery, newsagent, a pool shop, a Veterinary clinic, a clothing store, a daycare centre, a cafe, a pharmacy, an Indian supermarket and a restaurant.

It is used for local sporting clubs including; the Landsdale Rockets Football Club, the Landsdale Lions Junior and Senior Cricket Club as well as a small tee ball club.
