at the scene

12 April, 2012

HON SUE ELLERY (South Metropolitan — Leader of the Opposition) [8.13 pm]: […] Foundation Day celebrates the formal beginning of European settlement in Western Australia through the establishment of the Swan River Colony. Captain Stirling and his crew aboard the Parmelia saw the coast of Western Australia around the Swan River on 1 Jun 1829. That was a very important day in our history. I rang my dad today to check the facts with him.

Hon Kate Doust: Was he there with them?

Hon SUE ELLERY: Not quite. I will tell him the member suggested that!
