This website has been created by the Villa Dalmacia Association (Inc), which is a not for profit aged care organisation in Spearwood, Western Australia, providing services primarily for the frail aged of Croatian and other Southern European origin.
The Board of Villa Dalmacia considered that it was important to record the history and achievements of Croatians and their descendants not only in Western Australia but also throughout Australia and New Zealand.
A subcommittee of the Board was created, the Croatian History Group, to undertake this task. It has worked hard for some years to gather historical data on many aspects of the involvement of Croatian immigrants in Australia’s past.
The History Group will undertake the responsibility for ensuring that all the data it has at its disposal is made available on this website. It will also solicit further input of data in an effort to provide comprehensive coverage of the history of Croatians in Australia. An editorial group will be responsible for ensuring the data is valid and accurate.

Historical information or photographs will be welcome from any source and will be placed, after editing in one of the many sections of this website.
