Polio Australia is collecting stories from polio survivors, their families and carers to preserve our mutual history. Otherwise how will the generations to come know what it was like to contract polio before vaccines became available? Please take the time to browse our Australian stories.

We encourage you to add your own story to the growing collection and to visit this page often as its contents expand over time. Stories can be emailed or posted to us (our contact details) and are welcome in any format – hand-written, typed, audio recordings, photographs, movies, videos and more are all most welcome. Originals can be returned.
