The City of Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, the nation's largest state. Most of Western Australia's 1.8 million people live in the greater metropolitan area of Perth, of which the City of Perth forms the nucleus.
Captain James Stirling founded the City of Perth as part of the Swan River Colony in 1829. Stirling thought the natural environment around Perth was "as beautiful as anything of this kind I had ever witnessed" and advocated that a colony be established there. The British Government agreed to found the colony as the first free settlement in Australia, and the first settlers arrived in Western Australia in June 1829. On August 12 of that year, the felling of a tree marked the official foundation of the City of Perth.
