The Perth metropolitan region or Perth metropolitan area is a term used to describe the administrative area and geographical extent of the Western Australian capital city of Perth and its conurbation.
- The metropolitan region is defined by the Planning and Development Act 2005 to include 30 local government areas with the outer extent being the City of Wanneroo and the City of Swan to the north, the Shire of Mundaring, Shire of Kalamunda and the City of Armadale to the east, the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale to the southeast and the City of Rockingham to the southwest, and including the islands of Rottnest Island and Garden Island off the west coast. This extent correlates with the Metropolitan Region Scheme.
- The Australian Bureau of Statistics' Perth (Major Statistical Division) accords with the Metropolitan Region Scheme area.
- The Regional Development Commissions Act 1993 includes the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale in the Peel region.
- The Australian Bureau of Statistics Greater Capital City Statistical Area, or Greater Perth in short, consists of the area defined by the Metropolitan Region Scheme, plus the City of Mandurah and the Pinjarra Level 2 Statistical Area of the Shire of Murray.
The Perth metropolitan region is grouped with the Peel region in some urban planning documents including the Western Australian Planning Commission's Directions 2031 and Beyond and the Perth and Peel@3.5million suite of documents. Together, the Perth and Peel regions stretch 150 kilometres (93 mi) from Two Rocks in the north to Bouvard in the south and are currently home to more than two million people.
