Property Management Kelmscott - Perth - Suburb Profile
Kelmscott is a residential and rural area, with commercial areas along the Albany Highway.
Kelmscott is bounded by the City of Gosnells
in the north, Canning Mills
Road, Bullockbush Road, the locality of Roleystone
and Stocker Road in the east, the locality of Bedfordale
, Paterson Road, Hill Street and the Brookton Highway in the south and the Albany Highway in the west.
Kelmscott is named after a place in Oxfordshire, England.
Settlement of the area dates from 1830 when the township was established, with land used mainly for farming.
Initially the townsite served as a military outpost to protect the early settlers and explorers.
Expansion took place from the 1890s into the early 1900s, spurred by the construction of the railway line.
Significant development occurred during the post-war years, with rapid growth in the 1960s and 1970s.
The population has been relatively stable since the early 1990s, a result of some new dwellings being added, but a decline in average household size.
Major features of the area include Kelmscott Town Centre (including Kelmscott Plaza and Stargate Kelmscott Shopping Centre), Darling Range National Park, Kelmscott Public Open Space, Fancote Park, Frye Park, Lloyd Hughes Park, Rushton Park and a number of schools.
