City of Swan

The City of Swan covers the largest local government area within metropolitan Perth and is one of the fastest growing urban corridors in Australia.

At over 1,042 square kilometres, the City offers a diverse range of business spaces from rural through to high tech industrial and a diversity in the workforce to match.

The Swan Valley is Western Australia's oldest wine region and has earned its reputation as Perth's Valley of Taste. Wine specialties of the region include Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Verdelho. The region is also recognised world wide for its fortified wines.

Guildford is the oldest inland settlement in WA and is heritage listed by the National Trust of Australia (WA), while Midland is the commercial centre of the Swan Valley with two major shopping centres, markets and the former Midland Railway Workshops, now emerging as a major tourist attraction.
