The Perth Metropolitan Region is an urban planning term to describe the region surrounding Perth, Western Australia. It includes the coastal strip from Two Rocks in the north to Singleton in the south, and inland to The Lakes in the east.[1]

The Perth Metropolitan Region falls within Greater Perth. Planning for the region is administered by the Western Australian Planning Commission through the Metropolitan Region Scheme.

The term is loosely synonymous with Perth metropolitan area, an informal but more widely used term.

The Perth Metropolitan Region is equivalent to the Australian Bureau of Statistics' Perth (Major Statistical Division).
