About this website

This website was created in April 1999 and has been kept up to date regularly since then.

A snapshot of the site is taken each year by the National Library of Australia and kept in its online archive, Pandora, as a website of national significance. Pandora can be accessed at www.pandora.nla.gov.au (other republican websites can also be found there).

Content for the WfaAR website is collected and assessed by the National Convenor of WfaAR.

This website is personally funded by the National Convenor of WfaAR. There are no other sources of funding sought or accepted for this site.

WfaAR acknowledges the contribution of web mistress, Leone Moffat of Canberra, who designed the site and maintained it from 1999-2004 and the efforts of Clint Tynan and his team at Netspeed Internet in Canberra from 2005-2009 that carried out many updates to this site.
