DESCRIPTION

 

Bullsbrook is the home of R.A.A.F. Pearce where an air show attracts visitors from all over the country. The air show is somewhat infrequent with the last two being held in 2005 and 2012 so it could be 2017 or later, before we see the next one.

 

R.A.A.F. Pearce is the main air base in W.A. and is primarily used for flight training. The Republic of Singapore Air Force also uses the base for training purposes.

 

Although still predominantly a rural area, the town is effectively now an outer suburb of Perth and is located on the main highway north.

 

HISTORY

 

Originally just a station on the Midland railway, the town gets its name from Bulls Brook - a nearby watercourse. The Brook was probably named after Lt. Henry Bull who took up land in the area in 1831.

 

Gazetted as Kingsford in 1936, the name was changed to Bullsbrook in 1939 to avoid confusion with Kingsford in NSW.

 

The air base was established in 1939 but the military had been using land in the area since 1935. The base was named after a West Australian politician, Sir George Pearce.
