Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia. It is the fourth most populous city in Australia, with an estimated population of 1.97 million living in Greater Perth.

Before it was Perth it was Boorloo. The land on which Perth lies now was once known as Boorloo. Boorloo formed part of Mooro, the tribal lands of Yellagonga, whose group was one of several who lived around the Swan River, known as the Whadjug. The Whadjug was a part of the greater group of 13 or so dialect groupings which comprised of the south west socio-linguistic block still known today as Noongar (The People).

Perth is also known as the 'City of Light'. The naming is the result of the fact that when astronaut John Glenn orbited above back in 1962 he could identify Perth because everyone turned on all their lights, making Perth highly visible.

Perth is the most isolated city in the world, with its closest city being Adelaide and that's over 2,200km away.

If WA were to be a country in its own right, it would be in the world's top 10 for size.
