The Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia (RASWA) is a member-based not-for-profit apolitical organisation based in Perth, WA. RASWA’s role is to promote the significance of rural Western Australia and the state’s primary industries.
- Local Clubs:Food & Wine,Social Club
- Industry & Politics:Industry Assn
Working to help ‘bridge the gap’ between city and country WA, the Society’s activities are focused on showcasing the many and varied achievements of rural Western Australia. Since the founding of the Society in 1831, RASWA has successfully encouraged and assisted the development of Western Australian resources – including agricultural, horticultural, viticultural, industrial, rural, technological, commercial and mineral resources.
Operating under the Royal Agricultural Society Act, the Society plays a key role in agricultural shows and rural events around the State. We have close links to regional agricultural societies and livestock breed societies. We support community and junior sporting groups which use Claremont Showground.
We encourage regional and agricultural students through our involvement in educational scholarships and competitions which enhance the skills and opportunities of young people.
We recognise the achievements of individuals through the Agricultural Hall of Fame, the Rural Community Achiever and the Rural Ambassador awards.
RASWA holds freehold title to the land at Claremont and its tenure is enshrined in an Act of Parliament. With that comes an obligation and a responsibility to utilise the grounds to its best advantage. Accordingly RASWA’s vision is to have these grounds, with their strategic location, not only a focal point for showcasing the best of rural Western Australia, but a year round centre for innovation, education and entertainment.
Each year Claremont Showground hosts a diverse range of events, exhibitions and festivals in a variety of pavilions, function / seminar rooms, arena and outdoor areas.
RASWA is also responsible for the organisation and management of Western Australia’s largest annual community event, the Perth Royal Show. Like no other event, the Perth Royal Show is a show for the people – a great example of how the RAS serves the community and achieves its mission objectives. The Perth Royal Show competitions benchmark excellence across a range of industries including livestock, wine making, beer production, dairy, food production, clothing production, the arts and sport.

The Guild also has an extensive and varied workshop programme, a large lending library, and a Historic Textile Collection which is open to members and the public by appointment.
The Guild also provides children's activities during school holidays.
The Collection houses over 1600 textile items of cultural and historic significance and is highly regarded as a specialised textile museum. It is part of the cultural heritage of Western Australia and reflects the beautiful needleart stitched by women and men of past generations and those of today. It is being cared for by the Guild's Textile Collection Group so that all the community can benefit. Everyone is welcome to view and enjoy it but you do need to make an appointment.
The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) is the caretaker of football throughout the State and is responsible for the overall development of the game.
- Local Clubs:Social Club
The WAFC’s role includes ownership of the State’s two AFL teams – the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Football Club, guiding the West Australian Football League (WAFL), overseeing community football, managing umpiring, and driving participation through game development and the talent pathway.
The WAFC is a not for profit sports association. It is incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act and governed by a voluntary Board of Commissioners that oversees the operation of all football activities throughout the State. The WAFC features more than 100 employees spread across the State.
The WAFC plays an important role in funding the ongoing development of football via our affiliates, schools, competitions and academies across all WA communities. This ensures that football is the best resourced sporting code in the State and can have the most active role in building better communities through various development programs.
The rich history of football in the community of Western Australia stretches back to 1885. Today it is the most popular sporting code in the state with 105,000 club participants, of which from Auskick to Seniors, 7% identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
This results in a significant social benefit and the creation of better communities through the active promotion of the sport and its associated values of teamwork, responsibility, respect, leadership, commitment and community participation.
While many of these benefits have long been the result of our activities, the West Australian Football Commission has both harnessed and harvested those activities delivering these benefits, and used the understanding to develop the most comprehensive community benefits programs in Australia.
The WAFC runs and supports:
- The WAFL competition
- The WAFL Colts competition and supporting talent pathway
- State talent academies for males and females
- The umpiring talent pathway
- School competitions and the AFL School Ambassador program
- Multicultural engagement programs
- Indigenous engagement programs including the Nicky Winmar and Kirby Bentley carnivals
- Auskick, junior and youth football
- All community competitions through our affiliated leagues
- Tribunals, governance and integrity programs
- Community facility funding
- Coaching, umpiring and volunteer accreditation and development
