West Australia

 


 

 

 


 

 

 

West-Australia er en av landets seks delstater, og den største. Antall innbyggere ca. 2.2 mill.  Hovedstaten og den største byen  i delstaten er Perth. Vest-Australia ble etablert i 1829 som en britisk koloni, kjent som Swan River Colony, av Kaptein James Stirling. Det vokste veldig sakte fram til oppdagelsen av gull i regionen Kalgoorlie i 1890-årene.

 

 

I 1890 ble det gitt selvstyre av den britiske kronen under "Constitution Act 1889", med Sir John Forrest som første Premier. I 1901, ble det en av de seks landene i den australske føderasjonen.

West Australia er kjent for blant annet vin-distriktet Margaret River. Delstaten er også populær med bl.a. ved at mange turister reiser hit hvert år for å prøve den populære vinsmakingen, surfing i Yallingup, grottevandring og de mange andre attraksjonene delstaten kan tilby.
