Well to start with 'we' is mostly 'I' as primarily, only one person is responsible for the creation and maintenance of this website. We have had people contacting
us who think that there is a large organisation behind the site but basically there are just four of us and we are all members of the same family.
It all started back in 1997 when we gave up our regular jobs and went on a working trip around Australia in an old 1962 Bedford bus that we christened 'The Western Belle'.
At the time there were just two of us and I started to write about our travels and developed a website called 'www.westernbelle.com' which has since been removed from the
internet. Our site was only the second Australian website about travelling in a motorhome and the whole 'internet thing' was only in its infancy. If only we had the technology
back then that we have now, what a huge difference that would have made.
As part of our website we included information about Western Australia in a separate section and this gradually developed into a book.
The book grew and grew and became harder and harder to update so in the end we decided to stop producing it and turn everything into an easily accessible website.
In 2009 this website was created and has continued to grow ever since.
The original intention of this website was to educate people about Western Australian history and to a great extent we have succeeded in this aim. Every year thousands
of school children access our site to help in their history studies and a lot of adults drop in to find all sorts of historic data.
We have also included a lot of information about attractions and places to go, with pages dedicated to 'What To Do' and 'How To Get Around'.
