Perth North Region Local History

For thousands of years before settlement of the Swan River Colony, the indigenous Nyoongar people were hunters and gatherers who occupied the south-west corner of Western Australia. The lakes on the coastal plain were particularly important to the Aboriginal people, providing them with both spiritual and physical sustenance.

1829 North Perth, European Settlers arrive.

They gave the name of the "Third Swamp" to one of the lakes stretching from Claisebrook to Herdsman Lake. In 1897 almost 70 years later 15 hectares of the "Third Swamp" were gazetted as a public park which was named Hyde Park.

1831 Hostile encounters

between the settlers and Nyoongars over land rights. This violence culminated in the execution of Whadjug tribal chief, Midgegooroo, the murder of his son Yagan and the massacre of the Murray tribe.

1843 When Yellagonga Died,

his tribe began to disintergrate when they'd been dispossessed of their land around the main settlement of the Swan River Colony. They retreated to the swamps and lakes north of the settlement including "Third Swamp" known by them as "Boodjamooling".

"Third Swamp" continued to be the main campsite for the remaining Nyoongar people in the Perth Region. It was also used by travellers, and homeless people. And later in the 1890s gold rush days by miners en route to the goldfields.

1855-1883 Lakes Were Drained

and settlement increased to the north of Perth.

1871 The Muncipalities Act

established Perth and seven other towns from which municipalitles levied rates while local Road Districts were financed exclusively from government grants.

1881 Fremantle to Guildford rail line

was completed and residential development progressed. Highgate began to develop the Woodville Estate aka North Perth was opened in 1890.

1881 Thomas Farmer,

had arrived in Perth in 1829 as a young boy, purchased a large lot called Swan Location 653.

1897 Leederville Population

reached more than 1,000 and it's municipal area was divided into three wards, north, south and central.

1898 Thomas Farmer's heirs sold

Lot 653 to property developers and the first subdivisions began creating the iconic area of Angove Street and surrounds.

1890s-1900s Much of Vincent's rich heritage originates

from this era when many community buildings were established, including the North Perth district school (now North Perth Primary) Highgate Primary School, Leederville and Brisbane St post offices, North Perth police station, Brisbane and Queens hotels, and North Perth Town Hall and the Redemptorist Monastery.
