Captain James Stirling


1 Comment

The city of Perth in Western Australia was named by Captain James Stirling in 1829 after Perth, Scotland. Before the establishment of the Swan River Colony, the indigenous Noongar people occupied the southwest corner of Western Australia, hunting and gathering. The lakes on the coastal plain were particularly important to the Aboriginal people, providing them with both spiritual and physical sustenance.
