Darwin is in a similar situation if you take 'anywhere' to mean
anywhere in Australia.

Depending on what is being planned, attracting the general public
may be useful - you might score a few new editors.

There are 42 names in Category:Wikipedians_in_Perth.  That won't be an
exhaustive list.

The Sydney page has a section where interested people can ask to be
contacted for future meetups [1] - there are currently 25 names on it,
which is 11% of the people in Category:Wikipedians_in_Sydney.  Something
similar might be useful to gauge interest in Perth.

Looking through attendees at the previous meetups could also be useful
