Western Australia is a big place, and even Perth is fairly spread out, so Local Permaculture Groups give people greater opportunity to share experiences, celebrate achievements (and share surplus) as well as overcome challenges.
Belonging to a local group can also provide inspiration and motivation, hands on practical help, opportunity to share equipment or swap seeds and cuttings. Lastly and maybe of greatest value, local groups can provide a sense of comradeship and connectedness.
