As borders went up and communities around the country locked down, Australia was afforded a unique opportunity to turn its gaze inward.

Nowhere did that play out with more poignancy than in Western Australia. With the state isolated from most of the nation for the better part of two years, locals rekindled their love affair with all things Western Australia, embraced their culture and celebrated its legacy.

For Fremantle-based Brett Leigh Dicks that came in the form of the humble lunch bar. From cream buns and vanilla slices to meat pies and salad sandwiches, lunch bars have long been a staple of Western Australia’s working-class culture.

For the past two years, Brett has tracked down examples of this quirky and vibrant slice of Western Australiana.
