Bickley

1978 OK. Discovered 1978 July 28 at the Perth Observatory at Bickley.

Named for the present site (since 1966) of the Perth Observatory. In 1915 the locality, in the Darling Range 23 km east-southeast of the center of the city, was officially named for Samuel Wallace Alexander Walsh Bickley (1810-1876), a pioneer in the area who was also a successful merchant and a nominated member of the Legislative Council of the colony (as it was at that time) of Western Australia.
