Guildford is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, 13 km northeast of the city. Its local government area is the City of Swan.

History[edit]

Guildford was established in 1829 on the Swan River, being sited near a permanent fresh water supply. During Captain Stirling's exploration for a suitable site to establish a colony on the western side of the Australian continent in the late 1820s, the exploration party of boats found a fresh water stream across the river from the site of Guildford which they called Success Hill.

Guildford was primarily the centre of the Swan River Colony before Perth succeeded in being the dominant location on the Swan Coastal Plain.

Guildford was the home of Lew Whiteman and his family. The Whiteman family were responsible for the establishment of various industries. The Whiteman family established Mussel Pool as a picnic area for their employees. This land and the purchase of surrounding land by the State Government in 1978 was used to create Whiteman Park. The original home of the Whiteman family are now Tea rooms; the house is one of the oldest standing homes in Western Australia.

Guildford was originally the political centre of what is now called the City of Swan. The original council chambers have been converted to a library. Alongside the library stands the Town Hall; behind this is the stables built for the councilors while attending meetings and as a depot for council equipment. These stables have been converted and are now the home of The Garrick Theatre which is the oldest operating theatre group in Western Australia. The original structure is still visible. Inside the roof has its original shingles still in place, though from the outside they have been covered by corrugated iron.


Alfred's Kitchen[edit]

Alfreds Kitchen Guildford

Alfred's Kitchen is a late night kiosk on the corner of Meadow and James Streets in Guildford, Western Australia. It was established in 1946 by its namesake Alfred Cook.[2] Alfred's main feature is an outdoor fire place around which customers can sit. Alfred's is a popular eatery that attracts a wide array of patrons.[3] It is situated close to where two major highways, Great Eastern Highway and Great Northern Highway, enter Perth. When first established, Alfred's provided a first stop for many weary travellers and truck drivers, entering from the north and east, during a time when Perth had few late night eateries.[citation needed]

The Guildford Association[edit]

The Guildford Association Incorporated is the residents' association of the Town of Guildford.

The goals of the Association are to preserve and promote the historic and rural nature of Guildford and its environs and to enhance and protect the quality of life of residents and rate-payers in the area.

The Association meets each month at the Mechanics Institute in Meadow Street to debate local issues and to support local residents by communicating the desires of the Guildford community to local government.
