HistoryEdit

The Bayswater Road District was created on 5 March 1897. On 1 July 1961, it became a shire following the enactment of the Local Government Act 1960. On 29 October 1983 it attained city status.[2][3] In 1998 the suburb of Maylands was transferred into the City of Bayswater from the City of Stirling. The portion of the suburb of Noranda north of Widgee Road was transferred to the City of Bayswater from the City of Swan on 1 July 2016.[4]
