A new suburb for the City, Bennett Springs encompasses the residential estates of Orchid Park and Bennett Springs, which were originally part of the Beechboro locality, and also includes an area of West Swan, west of Lord Street, and a small portion of Whiteman.
The name Bennett Springs pays homage to one of the State’s first women, Matilda Bennett, who arrived in WA in 1929 with her husband John Septimus Roe.
Matilda Bay and Bennett Brook were also named after her.
(Bennett Springs is a new suburb post Census, therefore there are no ABS statistics available)
