Tuart Hill is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia.

Tuart Hill is named after the tuart tree that once grew extensively throughout the area, especially around Dog Swamp. In 1914 the suburb name of Grenville was proposed as a name for the suburb by the Grenville Progress Association, but not accepted due to its likeness to Granville in New South Wales.

Events

Since 1914, the Osborne Park Agricultural Society holds its annual show at Robinson Reserve in Tuart Hill. [2] The show is usually held around the first weekend in December on Friday and Saturday and features displays of local produce, animals and livestock, carnival attractions and fireworks.
