Among the first Europeans to set foot on WA were members of the Dutch Dirk Hartog expedition. After Major Edmund Lockyer landed in Western Australia on 26 December 1826, the first permanent settlement of the Englishmen occurred in the state.

The Indigenous Australian Aboriginals were well-established for a long time across the state before the European settlement began in the early 17th century.

Western Australia was officially declared a state on 1 January 1901 after the residents voted for federation after a campaign led by John Forrest.
