The Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia Inc. (RASWA) is a non-profit organisation based in Perth, Western Australia. RASWA aims to promote the significance of rural Western Australia and the state's primary industries.

The RASWA was founded in 1831. It held its first show in 1834. In 1890 it received permission to use the word 'Royal' in its title.

Since that time it has encouraged and assisted the development of Western Australian resources, including agricultural, horticultural, viticultural, industrial, rural, technological, commercial and mineral resources.

Today the Society's activities are focused on showcasing the achievements of rural Western Australia. Operating under the Royal Agricultural Society Act, the Society plays a key role in Agricultural Shows and rural events around the State. It is also responsible for the organisation and management of Western Australia's largest annual community event, the Perth Royal Show.
