The area was first developed by European settlers in 1829, when the rich soils and abundant water of the Canning River provided the means for settlement. By 1913, Gosnells (named after prominent London businessman Charles Gosnell) had become home to many who worked in Perth but preferred a more rural lifestyle.
Today the City of Gosnells has a pleasant blend of urban and rural lifestyles. It is rich in historical buildings and museums which reflect the lifestyles of the early pioneers.
Enjoy a variety of walk trails and picnic spots; visit the Railway Markets, wildlife sanctuary or the museum.
A variety of quality accommodation is available, from hotels and motels to bed and breakfasts and caravan parks.
