Czech and Slovak Association of Western Australia
The Czech and Slovak expatriate club is a small Czechoslovak island in Western Australia.
Throughout the sixty-year history of the club, regimes were changed in the homeland and divided the republics, but the essence of our compatriot association is still the same.
We like to meet, we like to speak Czech and Slovak, we like our culture and tradition, which we want to keep for ourselves and our children despite the geographical latitudes and longitudes.
The Czech and Slovak Association in West Australia publishes magazine Klokan monthly and provides information to compatriots. We also cover projects for teaching Czech for children and adults and the Perth Film Festival. Throughout the year the Association organizes a number of cultural events for children and adults.
If you are Czechs, Slovaks, friends or sympathizers of Czechoslovak culture, we will be happy to meet you at some of the club's events.
Krajanský časopis Klokan was founded in 1995 and his name was given by the then club treasurer Mr. Josef Netolický.
Klokan publishes once a month, informs about events, brings news from home or important information from consulates, publishes interesting articles, entertainment, and classifieds. From the beginning of 2011, Kangaroo also has its full-color electronic version, and e-mail and web pages get more readers as "eKlokan". Since June 2012, the Kangaroo is expanding with a separate 4-page attachment for kids - Klokanek. Klokanek is published in Czech and Slovak alternately.
