Swan Hills - What's in a Name?

This is a "made-up" name created for the electorate because it encompasses portion of the Swan Valley and the hills area to the east of Perth. The Swan River was named by the Dutch explorer Willem Vlamingh in 1697 because of the number of Black Swans seen on the river.
