Perth in Australia

History

The city of Perth in Western Australia was named by Captain James Stirling in 1829 after the Scottish town, Perth. Before the founding of the Swan River Colony, the indigenous Noongar people were well established in the southwest corner of Western Australia, hunting and gathering. They called the area on which Perth now stands Boorloo.

Boorloo formed part of Mooro, the tribal lands of Yellagonga, whose group was one of several based around the Swan River, known collectively as the Whadjug. Like elsewhere in Australia, the Aboriginal occupation of the coastal plain was unconsciously preparing the ground for European settlement. The ground they cultivated, the tracks they passed along, the native plants they cropped and the bush they cleared by fire all foreshadowed the siting and establishment of European settlements and homesteads.

Entertainment

There is so much to do in Perth! The Western Coast of Australia has some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world! Take a boat trip to Rottnest Island and make selfies with quokkas. Have a go at surfing, snorkeling or just sunbathing at Cottlesloe beach.
