Steeped in tradition, Perth hosted its very first International Great Waiters Race in 2014, joining a long list of cities worldwide that have hosted this event, which pays tribute to the city’s waiters. This exceptional event is organised by the Rotary Club of West Perth with the aim to raise funds for local Charities.


Our purpose is to help the families and carers of children with special needs and disability to ‘carry the load’ by providing practical information and emotional support as well as  connecting them to services and other families in similar situations. In addition Kalparrin offers a highly regarded program of events and respite programs for all members of our families.  

 We take our name from an Aboriginal word meaning “help carry the load”  we are based at Princess Margaret Hospita
