The Karrakatta Club: its place in the history and future of Western Australia

Dr Lesley Williams is President of the Karrakatta Club established in 1894.   it is the oldest Club for women in Australia with its founding roots in advocacy for women and social issues.  The Club was created from a desire to educate and inform women during a time of great social restraints. it continues to flourish as a place of enrichment and knowledge-sharing for women of all ages and their guests. 

Founded on a view that anything that educated and enabled women also tended to strengthen men and the community, the Karrakatta Club continues to be guided by its motto Spectemur Agendo – Let us be guided by our actions – proposed by founding member Edith Cowan AO JP, Australia’s first female Parliamentarian and great social reformer. 

At Rotary’s evening presentation, Dr Williams will share some of the stories of the Karrakatta Club and enable you to come face to face with its history which includes far-sighted initiatives from many distinguished members in areas of healthcare, children’s advocacy and support for returning soldiers.  A history that helped shape Western Australia. 

With world-wide connections fostered through its membership of International Lyceum Clubs the Karrakatta Club has flourished for the past 127 years continually adding to its heritage, story and benefits.

Perth Then and Now
Perth Then and Now

Perth Then and Now accurately matches historic photographs of the city with specially commissioned contemporary views that show how each site looks today. With an Aboriginal history going back over 40,000 years, Perth ranks amongst the oldest places on earth with near continuous human habitation. The modern city came into being in 1829 with the formation of the Swan River Colony. For the first 60 years of its existence, Perth was no more than a small country town which lived on an economic knife-edge between riches and ruin. Then, in the 1890s, commercial quantities of gold were discovered in the North and East of Western Australia. This sparked the first of several mineral booms in the State and resulted in Perth being able to demonstrate its newfound wealth in the form grandiose buildings which transformed the modest town into the fine city we know today.
