Does any one know of somewhere the above are listed. I wrote to the RAC asking to provide a list in their magazine but no comment.With the council amalgamations plates have changed and I'm interested in an up to date list.Geraldton alone now has 4 plates
GN Geraldton, G the old Greenough, GNG the joint Geraldton/Greenough, MU Mullewa now the whole lot as CGG City of Greater Geraldton.
We are the envy of the eastern states being able to pick where people come from if they have Shire Plates on, which gives us a intro and conversaion starter.

Never heard of Mullewa being MU, has always been MW for as long as I know, and that's some 60 years.

And just to confuse the issue GN is Geraldton and GN. (dot) was Gnowangerup or was it the other way round.

Wasn't the dot the differentiator between Town Councils and Shires. So in the example of Northam, there was a town council and a sperate shire, both had plates with the letter "N" but one had a big dot between the letter and the number.

With amalgamation of shires and councils this may no longer be the case.

Before amalgamation down here, we had A for Town of Albany & AL for shire.... there goes your dot theory here.

Kev

I just read the attcahment in the link posted below and it confirms that where a town and shire had the same letter the dot was used to differentiate.

Maybe it didn't apply in Albany as you had because A and AL there was need to differntiate.

The list was always posted in the back of the Street Smart road directory. Haven't bought a directory for years so don't know if they still provide the list.

Then to create more confusion there are suburb ones like GH - Gooseberry Hill, SV-Swan Valley and there's bound to be a stack more kicking around.

WA must also be the home of personalised number plates?

On the list I posted the link to Swan is SW. Don't know if that includes Swan Valley.
GH - Gooseberry Hill doesn't appear, although I don't know how up to date the list is.

As you say, Dunc, there are plenty of locality and/or event plates other than the ones listed on Rod's posting
Down this way we have PLB-Peaceful Bay, WLP-Walpole, RCS-Rottnest Channel Swim. and there are plenty of others around.

The local Lions club arranged with transport/police to have a series 0000DE-9999DE authorised to fund raise for their community activities. The "regular" plates start at DE0000 and go up continuously as needed

I've seen a PMH series as well.

I had Kalamunda plates for a while, until I emigrated to the other side of the continent.

I think they were KM - it was a long time ago.

Just to throw a little more mud into the water, the local shire where I live (Mundaring) offered a bunch of plates with the numerical prefix and the alpha suffix. The regular plates have numbers so unwieldy that the plates are getting out of hand such as MDG.10100 etc. We have all the low numbers i.e. MDG. 6, MDG.7 up to maybe MDG .100 etc on shire owned vehicles.
So now we have 6.MDG, 7.MDG and so on.
And of course you can buy within the shire locality plates such as Glen Forrest GF.001 Sawyers Valley SAW.001.

Fun huh (;-))

Dandaragan, a small town with a largish shire area, is about 140km north of Perth.
