Four teams took part, the VFL, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania, with each playing one another once in a round robin format. The VFL won the Carnival after finishing as the only undefeated team.
Peter McKenna was the most successful goal kicker with 19 goals, followed by Glynn Hewitt and Phil Tierney who kicked 11 each.
Famous quotes containing the words perth and/or carnival:
“To motorists bound to or from the Jersey shore, Perth Amboy consists of five traffic lights that sometimes tie up week-end traffic for miles. While cars creep along or come to a prolonged halt, drivers lean out to discuss with each other this red menace to freedom of the road.”
—For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
“Looks like some carnival lost a good act.”
—James Gleason (18861959)
