Koondoola is an Aboriginal word meaning 'emu', and was approved as the name for this suburb in 1970.
The suburb was formed in 1973 when Homes-west subdivided both Koondoola and Girrawheen to provide cheaper accommodation for young families.
The names were advised by the Arnham Aboriginal elders, but Koondoola seems to come from the Laparouse Aboriginals.
Bush walkers of Koondoola meet at the entrance gate (located at the corner of Koondoola Avenue and Burbridge) every 2nd Saturday of the month at 8.00 am sharp for their tour.
