Welcome to the Incipient Canton of Vallon d'Or (also know as Dark Wood Valley)
We are a medieval living history group in the South West of Western Australia. We are part of the Society for Creative Anachronism, otherwise known as the SCA, a worldwide organization devoted to aspects of pre 17th century life including: Fighting, dancing, cooking, calligraphy, costume making, brewing and much more.
We hold meetings at the Balingup Community Centre on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 1pm onwards. Check Newsletter on our Information page for up to date details.

please email or call the Seneschal Lady Alazais of Chainbridge (firstname.lastname@example.org or 08 9731 6007)The Groups current status is Incipient as of January 18th 2011.
We largely make the things we use, cooking, sewing, armouring and anything else we can think of to do or to make. The sharing, both teaching and learning of the different crafts is important to the SCA.
Most importantly for us all, we have a great time doing all these things.
Worldwide the SCA is broken up into 19 Kingdoms, each with its own King and Queen. We are Part of the Kingdom of Lochac made up of Australia and New Zealand. Perth and its surrounding suburbs make up a smaller group called a Barony, in this case the Barony of Aneala. The Canton of Dark Wood Valley is in the South West based in the Balingup - Bridgetown Region. There are groups both North and South of Perth - the Canton of Aachenfeld in the North and the Canton of Abertridwr is in the south.
