History of Perth

Perth was founded in 1829 by the British to prevent the French from settling in the area. However, Perth grew from a small settlement to a city very quickly. This was in a large part due to the multiple gold rushes that occured in Western Australia in the 19th century.

In the 20th century, amenities in Perth improved and investments were poured into the city to make it more modern and tourist-friendly. Today, Perth is where you need to be if you want to experiene the heart of Western Australia.
