Perth’s history The history of Perth began in 1892, when British officially settled there on 12 August. Newly founded city was named after Perth located in Scotland, according to the wishes of Sir George Murray, Secretary of State for the Colonies and Member for Perthshire in the British House of Commons. Ever since then, colonies had multiple disagreements with indigenous the Noongar people, which led to few bigger conflicts and subsequently to their dispossession. the Noongar were forced to camp around swamps and lakes north of the settlement area including Third Swamp, known to them as Boodjamooling, which later on continued to be a main camp-site for the remaining Noongar people in the Perth region. Perth’s status as the city was announced by Queen Victoria in 1856. Its relative wealth and quick development were a result of its role as the main service centre for the state’s resource industries, which extract gold, iron ore, nickel, alumina, diamonds, mineral sands, coal, oil, and natural gas, although production takes place elsewhere in the state.
