Welcome to Guilderton

The name comes from the wreck of the Vergulde Draeck, part of the Dutch East India Company fleet, which ran aground nearby in 1656, reputedly carrying a treasure in guilders. Its original name was Gabbadah, meaning 'mouth of water', although many older Perthites still refer to it as Moore River.
