The aim of Fairbridgekids.com

 To collect information pertaining to Fairbridge Village, Pinjarra, Perth, Western Australia and the people, so that historic information is not lost to furture generations. You can walk down memory lane through reading our stories, looking at our pictures and memorabilia or look up some family history. That’s what it’s all about.

Fairbridgekids.com acknowledge and are indebted to those who have contributed material for this site.


All images and narratives on this website remain the property of the webmaster or where applicable the respective authors of literary works or photograph/image owners. You may copy items from this website for personal use only. Any intended reproduction for commercial purposes (including re-publishing on other websites) must first have the express permission of the owner. In all events, please contact the webmaster of this site.

Copyright of a photograph is vested in the person who takes the photograph, not usually persons in the photograph, unless copyright is expressly agreed. For many old photographs shown on these pages, due to the age of the photographs (those generally 50 to 100 years plus in age), it may be difficult to determine with whom ownership is actually vested.  Some of the very old photographs could now indeed be considered to be in the public domain.

 All material published on this website is there as an historical record and not published for any commercial benefit.

You can get copies of many old photos from the OFA Museum. Please contact The OFA for details.


Collecting information and doing all the technical stuff to publish it is time consuming and hard work. If you’d like to make a comment one way or another about our content, style (or lack thereof) or whatever, then please email us. Please include your contact details, no contact details will be published or shared. All comments and suggestions are very welcome.

If you scan photos try and make them bigger than the above – scan at the highest resolution.

Black and white photos should be scanned selecting the “greyscale” option.

Once again, we encourage people to contribute.
