Waroona, Western Australia
Waroona has been in the news lately with a huge bushfire threatening the town in late January and early February. The main town survived but there was widespread damage in surrounding areas.
The Waroona Demons play in the strong Peel Football League and in recent years have dominated the competition. The Demons won the premiership in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012; were runners-up in 2013 and last year finished second on the ladder but didn’t make the grand final.
Former Swan Districts, Fremantle and St Kilda player Craig Callaghan was an important part of Waroona’s golden period and was premiership playing coach in 2012.
