The temple serves approximately 12,000 members in the area. Previously members had to travel a distance equivalent to going from Los Angeles to New York City in order to attend the nearest temple in Sydney. Local reaction to the temple was favorable. LDS Church leaders received letters from both the Governor and the Premier of Western Australia expressing their confidence that the temple would be a positive influence on the community.
Approximately 37,000 visitors toured the temple during the open house, held 28 April–12 May 2001. LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the temple on 20 May 2001. The temple has a total of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
