Bullsbrook is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia in the outer metropolitan area. It is located with the City of Swan. The original Bullsbrook townsite is located slightly west of the current town, on the 17km mark of the Midland Railway. Bullsbrook is also the home to the RAAF Pearce airbase, a major training facility for the Royal Australian Air Force.

Regarding the origin of the name, the Western Australian Department of Land Information states: [LandInfo WA|m|B|2007-05-15] :"...the name originates from the railway station, established during the construction of the Midland Railway in the 1890s and named after an adjacent watercourse, Bull's Brook. The watercourse may have been named after Lt Henry Bull who was granted Swan Location 1 about 8km south on 15 May 1831. Another possibility is that the watercourse was named after Richard ("Bull") Jones, one of Henry Bull's servants, who resided in the region for many years."Bull Jones's grandchildren,Edmund Keen BYRNE 1866-1957, and Mary Ann WOODS nee BYRNE 1870 -1966, confirmed the latter information as most correct.

Bullsbrook has a number of property development projects. Directly adjoining the Pearce Air Base is a new development soon to be released called Bullsbrook Commercial Centre. This development is being managed by [http://www.tuartproperties.com.au Tuart Properties] , local project managers also developing a number of projects in the region. Bullsbrook Commercial Centre will comprise 42 lots ranging in size from 1,000 m² to 3,000 m² capable of a range of commercial and light industrial uses.
