Swanbourne is a western coastal suburb of Perth, Western Australia and is an affluent locale with older Federation style homes, many being renovated. The suburb was established in the late 19th century. New housing estates have been built recently through the redevelopment of areas such as the Swanbourne Senior High School, Swanbourne Primary School and Lakeway Drive-In Cinema sites.

Swanbourne was named for Swanbourne House, in Swanbourne, Buckinghamshire, the family seat of Thomas Fremantle, 1st Baron Cottesloe, a prominent Tory politician and his brother Admiral Sir Charles Fremantle, for whom the city of Fremantle was named.
