Merriwa is an outer suburb of Perth, Western Australia. It is a predominantly residential suburb, containing two RAAF retirement villages.

The name "Hester" was originally approved for the suburb by the Shire of Wanneroo in 1980, after Thomas Hester, one of the first land owners in the vicinity.

Merriwa is primarily residential, but does contain some shopping and retail facilities. It relies on Clarkson and the nearby regional city of Joondalup for most other commercial and public services. (Source: Wiki)
