In Detail

Celebrate WA is a leadership organisation that has honoured outstanding Western Australians for 41 years.

A voluntary Board manages the Celebrate WA program. Board members have a wide range of skills that are helping to drive Celebrate WA’s vision and diverse programs and events. Board members share a deep pride in all things Western Australian and have a strong commitment to and enthusiasm for developing the Celebrate WA organisation.

In 2012, Celebrate WA undertook a major review of its activities. In response to feedback from our stakeholders, partners and the community, we have developed a new long-term strategy.

Until 2012, Celebrate WA regularly coordinated WA Week and its associated festivities, which centred around Proclamation Day. In 2012 we welcomed in a new era for our State with the significant change of ‘Foundation Day’ to ‘WA Day’. This new ‘State Day’ is inclusive for all Western Australians, recognising our Indigenous history, our early European settlers and the many people from all over the world who have made, and continue to make, Western Australia their home.


In 2013, Celebrate WA is coordinating a range of events focused on the June long weekend that kicks off on Friday 31 May and includes the WA Day public holiday on Monday 3 June.

WA Day is now the focal point for encouraging state-wide participation in a diverse range of activities and events that showcase the Western Australian spirit and our many achievements.
