Belmont

Belmont is quite a sizeable inner-city suburb located just a few kilometres to the east of Perth City. The suburb is bounded by Rivervale, the Swan River, Rivervale and Cloverdale. Right up until at least 1987, Ascot was not a suburb in its own right, it was part of Belmont. The Belmont lands were acquired by Captain Francis Henry Byrne in 1831 and named after his English estate. It was not until 1882, after the land was Shepherd Smith, did development commence
