Western Australia has a rich and varied folklore but if you have read any books on Australian folklore you would barely be aware of it.

Most books written about Australia and Australian history tend to focus on the eastern states and W.A. is invariably forgotten. We are one third of the Australian land mass but in the eyes of 'tothersiders' Australia ends on the eastern side of the W.A. border.

While I read through uncountable numbers of history books looking for information for wanowandthen.com, I quite often find little snippets of information that are funny or interesting but don't quite fit into the usual historical narrative. Few people will ever find them as they are buried deep in thick volumes that hardly anyone reads.

I always felt that it was a shame that nobody would ever hear these stories and that is where I got the idea to collect the stories in one place.

This is an attempt to set the record straight and to put down as much of our folklore as I can collect.

I operate a Facebook page  where you can add to the growing collection and I will then include the story in this book for everyone to share. If you want to read all the stories for free then you can do so on the Facebook page but if you would like to have a printable book that you can carry on your computer, smart phone or tablet then click the 'Buy Now' link above to buy a copy for just $3.99.

Our folklore is a combination of true stories, funny stories and outright leg-pulling. It can include prose and poetic verse but as long as it is about Western Australia then it will find a home here.

Please contribute by adding to the stories we already have and let the eastern states know that W.A. has a folklore history too!

Below are some of the stories in video form from our YouTube channel. 

 

We now have a BRAND NEW website for all our folklore stories. Click the picture below to visit.
