Welcome to Little Aussie - extremely useful local info

Here at Little Aussie we believe in making communities local again. And we think the best way to achieve this is to connect residents, like you, with honest, reliable and local family-run businesses - the sort of business we would refer to our own family and friends.

You will find those types of businesses in our magazines and online. We also support local, not-for-profit community groups by offering free advertisements and listings to help residents connect with sporting clubs, support groups, and many more local organisations.

While St Patrick’s Day (March 17) is considered the traditional date for sowing sweet peas, in warmer climate areas such as Perth, it’s safer to wait until April or May. Once the soil is cooler, there’s a lower risk of the seeds rotting before they germinate.
