List of places in Western Australia by population

This is a list of places in Western Australia by population

Urban centres by population[edit]

Urban centres are defined by the Australian Bureau of Statistics as an area with a core urban population of over 1,000 people.[1]. All places in this table use the ABS's urban centres and localities category, except for Perth, which uses the significant urban area category, because it does not have one. This overlaps with Pinjarra.
