Situated 25km from Perth GPO.

This suburb was named after Kelmscott in Oxfordshire, England. An announcement was made in July 1830, that in honour of Archdeacon Scott, the town would be named after his birthplace. The Archdeacon, returning to England from New South Wales aboard the HMS "Success", was stranded at the new Swan River settlement when the ship struck a reef off Fremantle in November 1829. For two months he was the only ordained minister in the colony and, with the assistance of the settlers and the garrison, he built a temporary church at Perth where he held the colony's first Christmas service.
