Connolly is a suburb built around a golf course. It was established in the late eighties and is a very green suburb with plenty of tall trees and beautiful gardens.
There is a mixture of single storey & double storey houses; it has mostly older style houses with some new builds in some places.
There's a big variety in building styles throughout Connolly. There are some houses with a price tag of over a million dollars around the suburb; there are also some town houses overlooking the golf course with courtyard gardens, they look like houses from a resort style complex.
There's also a private estate for the over 55's called The Links and it's next to the shopping centre.
In the centre of the suburb are Joondalup Resort and the Country Club golf course, which is a beautiful area with kangaroos, parrots and natural bush land.
In the resort you will find four different bars, two of them do British themed food at the weekend and the Kangaroo Arms has an atmosphere of a traditional British pub.
There is one small shopping centre at the south end of Connolly, which has a chemist and supermarket which are open 7 days, an ATM, bottle shop, beauty salon, hairdressers, a couple of take away shops, Thai restaurant, bakery, and a dental surgery. The Connolly community centre is next to the shops and there's also a block of short stay apartments there too.
At the north end of Connolly just over a main road called Shenton Avenue in the neighbouring suburb of Currambine, there you will find a larger shopping mall with Grand Cinemas, fast food outlets and restaurants are there also.
The freeway runs along side the east side of Connolly; it would take about 20 minutes from Connolly into Perth city.
