Banksia Hill Detention Centre opened in 1997. The centre underwent a major redevelopment from 2010 to 2012. Following this, the state’s only other juvenile custodial facility, the Rangeview Remand Centre, was closed and converted into an adult prison. Since October 2012, all juvenile detainees in Western Australia have been housed at Banksia Hill.

Banksia Hill is on Noongar Whadjuk land in the suburb of Canning Vale, Perth, Western Australia.
