Goldfields 1900′s

There has been a long history of  Italian involvement in the development of the State of  Western Australia.  Place names such as  New Norcia and Subiaco are synonymous  with  the  rich  Italian heritage in the State.  Italian expertise is reflected in every facet of  life in this  State – in politics, business, sport, culture and the arts and community.

Italian today enjoy the status of being senior partners in a multicultural  Australia and are responsible  for establishing the strong sense of  Italian culture that exists in Western Australia today.
