The Nationals WA has a vision for WA where regional communities and regional people are not punished by their choice to live outside the city; where the tyranny of distance is relegated to myth and legend; and where every West Australian has access to the jobs, services, and infrastructure required to live a prosperous life and build strong communities.
The Nationals WA believes West Australians are at their best when we stand up to be counted, tackle the big challenges head-on, and take pride in putting our community first.
It is the blood, sweat, and tears of regional West Australians that underwrites the WA – and national – economy. It is only fair the hard-working men and women who call regional communities home, are represented in parliament. That’s why the Nationals WA exists and why we continue to fight for regional communities across the state.
The Nationals WA has built a reputation as a no-nonsense party that thrives on getting its hands dirty in parliament to represent those who get their hands dirty to create jobs and deliver services across this vast state.
The Nationals WA has a strong legacy of delivering for regional communities, most notably for its creation of Royalties for Regions in the Grylls/Barnett Government. We fought hard to deliver this game-changing programme and we will continue to fight hard to restore Royalties for Regions following the Labor State Government’s cynical diminishing of it.
For 110 years, The Nationals WA has got its hands dirty fighting for regional West Australians because that is what they do every day for our country.
During eight years in government from 2008 to 2017, The Nationals WA created Royalties for Regions, the biggest regional investment programme in Australia’s history. Royalties for Regions invested $6.9 billion into more than 3,700 regional WA programmes and projects across the state. While these projects helped transform regional communities, the work is not yet done.

Despite being spread across more than 2.5 million square kilometres, regional West Australians are represented by just 16 of the 95 parliamentarians. As regional representation in the State Parliament continues to be eroded, The Nationals WA’s megaphone for the bush must get louder.
