Welcome to the Children's Book Council of Australia 
Western Australian branch

Supporting the CBCA charter, this branch website is a Western Australian-centric resource for children’s book information.

You can find all the latest news about the CBCA WA Branch, event information, interesting articles, book launches and important milestones in the world of children’s literature here.

The WA Branch of the CBCA is in the process of moving to a new website platform. Please be aware that some of the information on this current website may be out of date while we make the move.
