Glen Forrest

Situated 25km from Perth GPO.

The hills suburb of Glen Forrest was first settled as a timber milling centre as early as 1877. In 1902 the Government declared a Townsite here and named in Amherst. It was renamed Smith¿s Mill the next year, and in 1915 changed to Glen Forrest. The name was the suggestion of a local resident, and combines "Glen" from the nature of the topography and "Forrest" from John Forrest, the first Premier of Western Australia.
