Willetton is a relaxed southern suburb of Perth bound by Leach Highway to the north and Roe Highway in the south. It was first settled in the 1830s, but it wasn't until the late 1960s and 1970s that the suburb experienced genuine growth. Since that time, Willetton has evolved into a thriving suburb with an industrial sector in its north and some commercial land use throughout, which in 2019 was number one in The West Australian's list of WA's top 50 schools.
