City of Kwinana logoThe City of Kwinana is within the Perth Metropolitan Area, around 38km south of the Perth CBD. Kwinana is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘young woman’ or ‘pretty maiden’. The area was named after the SS Kwinana which was wrecked on Cockburn Sound in 1922 and blown onto the beach now known as Kwinana beach.

Kwinana is home to BHP’s new nickel sulphate plant, the first of its kind in Australia, which recently produced its first nickel sulphate crystals. The refinery is expected to produce 100,000 tonnes per year when fully operational, enough to make 700,000 electric vehicle batteries each year.
