Malaga (/məˈlɑːɡə/) is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, approximately 11 kilometres north of the CBD, in the City of Swan.


The suburb is thought to be named after either the Spanish city of Málaga, or the Aboriginal word malaga which means ironstone; the name was approved in 1969.


Malaga is an industrial precinct. Currently there are 2409 businesses with a workforce of over 12,000 people; the 2006 census listed only 28 people living in the suburb.
