Education and sporting facilities
Newman College has its years 3 to 6 and years 7 to 12 located on two campuses in Churchlands.
Subiaco Marist Cricket Club is headquartered at Newman College.
It was formerly home to the Churchlands campus of Edith Cowan University, which closed in 2008.
The campus had been the Churchlands Teachers College (1972-1981) and the Churchlands campus of the Western Australian College of Advanced Education (1982-1990) prior to the founding of Edith Cowan University in 1991, and was the location of the university's headquarters until 2003.
The site was subsequently redeveloped as the Churchlands Green housing estate, while a small section of the site, including the campus amphitheatre, was set aside as Edith Cowan Reserve, serving as a memorial to the former campus.
On the eastern border of Churchlands is the large 300-hectare (741-acre) Herdsman Lake, which is populated by many bird, amphibian and freshwater fish species. Picnic and bird-watching areas are accessible from the suburb.
