Polish Community in Western Australia

Polonia WA was formed in May 2018 and is the state’s peak body representing the interests of the Polish community. Our membership base consists of Polish clubs, Polish schools, and various special interest associations, such as dance and theatre.

Our name represents the merging of two countries and cultures. The word ‘Polonia’ is defined as ‘Polish people who live outside Poland’ or in other words, the Polish diaspora. ‘WA’ or Western Australia in our name obviously represents where we currently live.

Western Australia has a thriving and active Polish community. A broad range of Polish language, cultural and social events are held each month to appeal to various interest groups. Browse our event calendar to join us at one of our next events.
