Darwin is in a similar situation if you take 'anywhere' to mean anywhere in Australia. >I'm not sure what to suggest. Advertise more widely? Attract the >general public? (That'd be interesting!) Depending on what is being planned, attracting the general public may be useful - you might score a few new editors. > Do you have a list of >Perth-resident Wikimedians, to have some idea of the potential if >everyone showed up? 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  - 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  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Sydney#Interested_in_future_meetups -- Peter Jeremy
