Australia - Perth and Western Australia

Perth has a population of some 2 million. It is located on the Swan Coastal Plain between the Indian Ocean and Darling Scarp. Perth was originally founded by Captain James Stirling in 1829 and gained city status in 1856. The city was named for Perth, Scotland, by influence of Sir George Murray, then British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. Western Australia occupies the western third of Australia and is its largest state. Its economy mainly relies on mining, agriculture and tourism.
