Perth photos

Kaya Wandju Wandju (Hello and welcome)

Perth City is located in the ancient country of the Whadjuk Nyoongar people, who have been the Traditional Owners of the south west of Western Australia for at least 45,000 years. At the time of European settlement in 1829, areas surrounding what is now central Perth were known as Mooro, Beeloo and Beeliar by the Nyoongar nation – the Aboriginal peoples of the south-west of Western Australia.

Perth has everything you need for an amazing holiday 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, friendly locals, and world class food and wine.

About the University of Western Australia (UWA)

Just 10 minutes from Perth city, UWA is located on the banks of Derbal Yerrigan (the Swan River) on the land of the Whadjuk Nation. It has been a place to gather and learn for tens of thousands of years, with stories and lessons shared from generation to generation of the world’s oldest continuous culture. Established as the State’s first university in 1911 and founded with a mission to ‘advance the prosperity and welfare of our communities’, the University opened in 1913. The global impact of the research and education places UWA as a world top 100 university (QS 2023).
