Martin is a rural and rural-residential southeast suburb of Perth within the municipality of the City of Gosnells. The suburbs population was scarce until the 1970s and has only fluctuated mildly between 1991 and 2011. Martin's settlement dates back to the mid-1800s with the land predominantly used for orcharding, market gardening and quarrying.
