The Town of Midland was a Local Government Area in the eastern suburbs of Perth, centred on the suburb of Midland.


On 8 November 1895, the Municipality of Helena Vale was proclaimed as the local government authority for the rapidly growing town of Helena Vale. The name 'Helena Vale' was chosen because of its closeness to the Helena River.

The first meeting of the newly elected Municipality of Helena Vale was held at the goods shed of the Midland Railway Company on 18 December 1895. Edwin Halpin was sworn in as the first Mayor of Helena Vale along with Councillors Alfred Eggleston, Thomas Norman, William Smiley, Alexander Watt, Francis Honey and William Brown.

On 12 April 1901, it was renamed Midland Junction after its main centre. On 1 July 1961, it was restyled the Town of Midland following the enactment of the Local Government Act 1960.

On 1 April 1970, the Council was forced by the State Government to merge with the Shire of Swan-Guildford to form a new council that would operate effectively and economically for the area. It is now a major suburb within the City of Swan.
