For Armadale it was deemed to be a suburb of Perth; but on questioning a number of people Armadale not Perth was the cited ‘where I live’ response.
Not that long ago Armadale was a small town. Fifty years on now a city, or a dormitory suburb of Perth. Very little of old Armadale has survived the developers wrecking ball, so that has determined Armadale is a somewhat soulless place to live. This perception is reinforced from the Wiki Page on the web. No history and no imagination.
Armadale covers an area of 560 square kilometres (216 sq mi), much of which is state forest rising into the Darling Scarp to the east, and has a population of 50,535 as at the 2006 census.
Prior to 1894, the area was part of the Canning Road District.
On 1 July 1979 it became the Town of Armadale and on 16 November 1985 it attained City status.
When heading to Perth, there is no need to give Armadale any consideration.
