Como is a suburb with a population of 12,423. Canning Highway divides the suburb. There are four schools in the area. These are the Collier and Como Primary Schools, Como Senior High School, and Penrhos College, a private all-girls school which has a primary school and a high school.


Originally the present "Como" comprised of three large land grants, Swan Locations 40, 41, and 42. Edmund Hugh Comer, a farmer of Christchurch, acquired the land by succession in February 1891. Extensive subdivision of the land was commenced in 1905 under the name Como Estate, a name thought to be derived from the owner's surname or after the town situated on the shore of Lake Di Como in northern Italy.
