Daglish is a small western suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Subiaco, west of the Perth central business district. It was named after Henry Daglish, who was a mayor of Subiaco and represented the seat of Subiaco in state parliament, including as Premier of Western Australia from 1904 to 1905.
The area of the suburb had been proposed as a shunting yard for the Fremantle railway line. Following the first world war, it was decided that shunting would take place at Fremantle and Midland locations instead. The usage of the area was not completely turned to residential as late as the late 1930s.
The origins of the proposed railway yard or industrial usage shows a difference between the "classic" Subiaco quarter acre with a brick California Bungalow in the Art Deco style in contrast with the Daglish and Shenton Park style housing blocks with small weatherboard worker's cottages.The suburb is well provided with public transport, including the Circleroute, the Daglish railway station, and buses along Hay Street. The suburb is centred on the Cliff Sadlier Reserve, named after Victoria Cross recipient Clifford Sadlier.
