About


The Swan River Colony. Perth was founded in 1829 largely because the British feared the French would establish a colony in Western Australia. ... Perth was named after the birthplace of Sir George Murray who was British Secretary of State for the Colonies when the city was founded in 1829.


Perth in Western Australia is sometimes mistaken for Perth in Scotland, and it happens for a reason. In fact, James Stirling, the first governor of Western Australia, named the city after Perth, Scotland in the year 1829 in honour of the birthplace of Sir George Murray, who was the Secretary of State for War and the Colonies, and held that position in the British House of Commons in Perth, Scotland
