City of Vincent

The City of Vincent encompasses a number of vibrant inner-city suburbs, holding within its boundaries a varied and rich history stretching back long before the settlement of the Swan River Colony.

Since settlement, much of Vincent’s rich heritage stems from the 1890s and 1900s, following the gold boom, when many community buildings were established. North Perth emerged as a municipality in its own right in 1901, alongside Leederville and Perth. These merged in 1914 to form the Greater Perth Council, which our suburbs were part of until 1994, when Perth was subdivided once again and the Town of Vincent created.
