Callan Rankin, best you make contact with me before I expose you’re…
Hi. Just wondering if you stock white a5 card 😀
Have you ever heard of, been to or lived in Waroona? Let us take you there…

Your State Library is featuring WA regional towns on its page. It's an opportunity to share stories, old photos and connect with old friends. Recently featured Tom Price, Paraburdoo, Busselton, Mandurah and Port Hedland.

Waroona is located 108 kilometres south west of Perth. Originally known as Drakesbrook, the name Waroona is possibly a variation of Werroona meaning "resting place".

Prior to European settlement in the late 1830's, the area around Waroona had been occupied for thousands of years by the Pinjarup language group of the Noongar Aboriginal people.

The town did not really develop until the Pinjarra to Picton railway line was opened in 1893. A timber mill was built and local timber was milled to build and extend the railway, attracting more settlers to the district.

Waroona served the needs of the mill workers with a post office, general store, blacksmith, a number of hotels come boarding houses, churches, doctor and dentist. The surrounding farms supplied butter, fruit and vegetables.

The town also became home to a Nestlé Milk Factory, that operated until the 1950's and later bauxite mining began in the area. The Willowdale Bauxite Mine operated by Alcoa was established in 1984 near Waroona, supplying bauxite ore to the Wagerup Alumina Refinery.

The first Waroona Dam, now the Drakesbrook Dam, was built in 1931-32 by unemployed people on work programmes during the Great Depression. The present Waroona Dam opened in 1966.

Dances, picnics and football formed the core of social life within the community and to this day Waroona is a successful sporting and social community. The annual Waroona Show is an important event on the calendar.

Today agriculture, mining and tourism are the important contributors to the local economy. If you happened to be visiting you can learn a lot more about the town's history at the Waroona Museum and Historical Society.
