ARMADALE is a city within the Perth Metropolitan Region. It is about 25 kilometres from the Perth Central Business District. Armadale is semi-rural and has vineyards and orchards within its boundaries.
Armadale is on the route of the old horse-drawn coach service to Albany, which at one time looked set to become the Capital of the British Colony of Western Australia. The railway replaced the coach service and Armadale had a siding which serviced the jarrah-timber-harvesting settlements and small landholders.
Heritage Country is being promoted to try to attract tourists to the area. There are some extremely scenic areas, especially in the hills called the Darling Scarp. Several of the dams constructed to supply Perth's water, add an extra sparkle to the deep, heavily wooded valley country.
WESTERN AUSTRALIA comprises about 30% of the area of the island continent of AUSTRALIA. It contains about 10% of the Nation' population. The South-Western corner is relatively damp and cool while high summer temperatures and low rainfall are not uncommon to the North and the East of the State. A high proportion of the State is classified as desert to semi-desert.
Nonetheless, the State is highly productive, and produces a disproportionately high share of Australia's wealth, particularly exports. Gold, natural gas, iron ore, diamonds, alumina, wheat, wool , lobsters and crayfish are the major contributors.
