Celebrate WA is pleased to provide a range of historical resources about Western Australia on this page for you to use and enjoy.
As one of the oldest landforms in the world, Western Australia has a long and rich history that includes our unique environment, Indigenous culture, European exploration, colonial settlement and post-war migration and growth.
The items on this page represent only a snapshot of our history, so we encourage you to visit other great sources of information about the state. A list of links to other websites and institutions is provided at the bottom of this page.
The following documents were prepared by Ruth Marchant James for Celebrate WA. It is also important to note that, where relevant, the copyright for the articles below remains with the author.
