The Untold Story of the Coolbaroo Club

Tuesday 16th July / posted by Chris Wheeldon

A fascinating new podcast is telling the stories of Western Australia's history. Untold WA is a collaboration between the City of Perth's oral history archives and the Barking Wolf production company. It aims to uncover all that is weird, wonderful and forgotten in our social memory.

Jesse Begley spoke with one of the subjects from the series, Barbara Hostaleck. Barbara is a descendent of one of the founding members of Perth's Coolbaroo Club, a social dance club that grew into a political juggernaut.
