Explorers of Western Australia
Historically, there were 26 Counties in the south-western part of the state, designated shortly after the Swan River Colony was founded in 1829. It was originally intended for these to be subdivided into Hundreds and Parishes in a manner similar to South Australia, but this did not occur, as the Division/District system took precedence.
