The WANATCA Files
The West Australian Nut And Tree Crop Association was brought into existence in 1975 by a small group of people passionate about growing nut trees (the original name was the West Australian Nutgrowing Society). A few years later, fruit and other tree crops were added to the brief. At that time, scant information was available about the horticulture of growing and propagating exotic plants and the use and processing of their products.
The Association flourished, with four meetings per year, plus field trips and other events. Quandong magazine was a quarterly newsletter that grew into a substantial publication: the last ten issues are presented here. The twenty-seven Yearbooks contained more detailed articles.
ACOTANC, the Australasian Conference on Trees and Nut Crops, was twice hosted by WANATCA in Perth, Western Australia. Papers from the ninth conference in 2001 are displayed on this website.
In 2007, WANATCA was dissolved due to falling membership. Members of WANATCA felt that the information contained in these publications is of considerable value, so provisions were made to ensure this material will continue to be available to the public.
