Welcome to the Perth task force of WikiProject Western Australia!

Some Wikipedians have decided to better organise information in articles related to Perth. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

Also visit the Australian Wikipedians' noticeboard for collaboration on Australian articles in general.


This task force aims primarily to cover articles about Perth, the capital city of Western Australia and Australia's fourth-largest city. It has many places of interest, significant events and interesting people that have helped form the unique character and style of the city.


WikiProject Perth originally came into being on 3 March 2005 and was initially heavily focussed on public transport. As time went on and the project membership expanded, a demand was created for a wider scope and on 17 December 2006 WikiProject Western Australia came into being through the work of several Perth Wikipedians. It was blindingly successful, several meetups and featured articles were soon to follow, and other states followed our lead.

Throughout 2007 and early 2008, however, the Perth project had became essentially dormant, and on 26 March 2008 it became a task force of the project it had originally spawned. There were two views on this—one was that the project had served the community with distinction but had reached a natural end; the other being that a need for it still existed and that it may well return to full production.

In January 2011 following the Wikipedia 10th Birthday meetup (and the WP WA 6th meetup) in Fremantle - consensus was that work on improving articles to do with Fremantle might work under the banner of this task force.

Let's make Perth a GA again – Here are some tasks you can do to help!

Actions required based on the Good article criteria:

  • Well-written
    • Copyedit for spelling, grammer, clarity, and WP:MOS compliance
  • Verifiable with no original research
    • Provide inline citations to reliable sources for all statements marked with [citation needed], as well as:
      • any direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons.
    • Usually, every paragraph would require at least one citation, as the article must also contain no original research.
  • Broad in its coverage (addresses the main aspects of the topic, stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail)
    • Expand primary and secondary education.
    • May need to reduce amount of detail in water supply section (using summary style)
    • Update Ethnic groups and Religion sections with more recent data. May also need to reduce amount of detail (using summary style)
  • Other GA criteria to be considered:
    • Neutral (it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias, giving due weight to each)
    • Stable (it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute)
    • Illustrated, if possible, by images

Please fix these issues, as well as any others marked with [inline tags].
