Kelmscott is a mixed-use residential, industrial, rural and commercial suburb located 25 kilometres southeast of Perth. Established in 1830, Kelmscott's most rapid growth period was in the 1960s and 1970s. More than 10,000 residents call the eight square kilometre suburb home.
Though close to the lively Armadale City Centre, Kelmscott is a quiet suburb nestled among the numerous parks and reserves that pepper its landscape.
The suburb of Kelmscott is bisected by the Canning River. On the western side of the river is the flat coastal plain upon which most of Perth is situated. To the east, the suburb rises into the western Darling Scarp.
Kelmscott was one of the very early towns established in the Swan River Colony and was named after Kelmscott, Oxfordshire, the birthplace of the first Anglicanclergyman in the colony, Thomas Hobbes Scott (1783–1860)
