Malaga Businesses – Suburb Focus

Malaga is an existing suburb of Perth in Western Australia which is approx 11 km north of the CBD, in the City of Swan.  It is mainly an industrial precinct with manufacturing as the top industry, followed by construction and wholesale trade. This area is the City of Swan’s major employment centre because 3,000 businesses are based there and 16,000 employed there.

The name Malaga may have been adopted from the Spanish city or the Aboriginal word “malaga” meaning “ironstone”.  The area was reserved for a future light industrial area but development including roads/industrial buildings started in the 1980’s.
