Western Australia was once commonly referred to as the 'Cinderella state'. This was mostly due to the lack of attention and finance supplied from the eastern states that still seem to think that Australia ends on the eastern side of the W.A. state border.
Far from being the 'Cinderella state', today, Western Australia is the powerhouse of the nation supplying the world from our vast mineral resources and feeding a good proportion of it from our extensive farm lands.
People now migrate to W.A. from the east in the hope of sharing in the abundant riches. Sadly this has led to housing prices sky rocketing and our most attractive areas becoming over crowded.
