Regional Cabinet Program

Regional Cabinet

The Western Australian Government has established the Regional Cabinet program to ensure communities outside Perth, the capital city, have the opportunity to participate in discussions on local issues with the Premier and Ministers.

This program is designed to reach a number of regional locations each year. Each visit comprises a formal Cabinet meeting and may include formal and informal community consultations, often tied in with major announcements affecting the individual region or the wider State.

Regional Parliament

Since 2008, the State Parliament has held a regional sitting of the Legislative Assembly (or Lower House) in Bunbury.

These sittings bring the traditions and protocols of Parliament to regional communities.

There are also meetings, consultations and events at which people living in the State's regional centres are able to interact with Members of the Government and the State Opposition.


Acknowledgement of Country

The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
