Our Vision

The WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY is a party for Western Australia, based in WA, run from WA, for the people of WA.


WAP Ballot Paper LogoUse the balance of power in Federal and State parliaments to protect the rights of Western Australia just as Nick Xenophon from South Australia and Andrew Wilkie from Tasmania have done for many years for their states.


WAP Ballot Paper LogoThe Western Australia Party is committed to supporting WA’s economy as the economic powerhouse of the Commonwealth of Australia.  WA’s exports account for 46% of Australia’s total exports.


WAP Ballot Paper LogoIn 2017, the Commonwealth Government raised $432 billion from all forms of taxation but WA only received $8.3 billion (1.9%), including GST of $2.3 billion. Our share should be closer to 11% based on our population and size of our State.


WAP Ballot Paper LogoWestern Australia has the resources and gross state product per capita to be within the top 50 economies of the world.  Our lifestyle, wealth and culture is protected by WA’s isolation and low population numbers.


WAP Ballot Paper LogoWe are a small but growing party with a focus on a better deal for WA from Canberra.  Our main policy is taxation reform to protect Western Australia’s interests, reduce state taxes, and local government costs.  Read more>>


GST for WA

WAP Ballot Paper LogoWA and NSW are the only states that get less than a per capita share of the GST. No other state has received less than 83 cents in the dollar.  WA is the only state to receive 30 cents in the dollar.  The GST formula rewards states that exploit gamblers and their gambling addictions.  The formula should be scrapped for a per capita share of GST revenue or $7 billion per annum.
