Area of the Perth Metropolitan Region Scheme

The Perth metropolitan region or Perth metropolitan area is a term used to describe the administrative area and geographical extent of the Western Australian capital city of Perth and its conurbation.

It generally includes the coastal strip from Two Rocks in the north to Singleton in the south, and inland to The Lakes in the east,[1] but its extent can be defined in a number of ways:

The Perth metropolitan region is grouped with the Peel region in some urban planning documents including the Western Australian Planning Commission's Directions 2031 and Beyond and the Perth and Peel@3.5million suite of documents. Together, the Perth and Peel regions stretch 150 kilometres (93 mi) from Two Rocks in the north to Bouvard in the south and are currently home to more than two million people.[6]
