Perth is the dynamic and rapidly growing capital city of the State of Western Australia and is located on the Indian Ocean Rim and within the Asia Pacific region, one of the world’s fastest growing and developing economic zones. Most of Western Australia’s 2.259 million people live in the greater metropolitan area of Perth, of which the City of Perth is the nucleus. The city is a centre of government, commerce, culture, education, sports, recreation, shopping and entertainment. It is set between the beautiful Swan River and the 400 hectares of Kings Park. A large proportion of the City’s 8.1sq km area is public open space. The city has a Mediterranean climate and enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other capital city in the country. The city of Perth has its origins in 1829 when the Swan River Colony was established by the British Government. The city was named after Perth in Scotland. Perth formally attained ‘city’ status in 1856 when it was declared a Bishop’s See by Queen Victoria. The first meeting of the Perth City Council was held on 10 December 1858. It was not until the centenary of Foundation in 1929 that the position of Mayor was elevated to Lord Mayor. The Council met at a number of locations over the years, moving to its current home, Council House, in 1963. In 1994, the sprawling local government area was split into four separate authorities with the creation of the Towns of Vincent, Victoria Park and Cambridge. The City of Perth remained as the capital city of Western Australia.
