Boya is a locality on the Darling Scarp, in the Shire of Mundaring, Western Australia. On the south side of Greenmount Hill, and just west of Darlington.

The name of Boya was not a local Aboriginal word, but was imposed by government officials in the early twentieth century.
It was crucial as a site of quarries. The Mountain Quarry and the Government Quarry were both important blue stone quarries in their time. The harbour and moles at Freemantle were built using stone from the Government quarry. (Source: Wiki)
