The 'Swan River Letters' comprises letters, documents and transcripts pertaining to the founding and early history of the Swan River Colony in 1829 in what was to become Western Australia. Swan River was first non-convict colony. A resulting “Swan River mania” brought nearly 4,000 settlers to Western Australia in 1829–30. Stirling arrived with the first party on the Parmelia in June 1829 at the site of the future port of Fremantle and founded the town of Perth 12 miles (19 km) inland.
