Growing up as a son of small business owners in regional WA has given Stephen Price invaluable insight and appreciation into the challenges of operating a small business.
After completing his schooling in Harvey and Bunbury, Stephen started his working career as a fly-in, fly-out gold miner before working at an alumina refinery, where he played a key role in improving health and safety programs on work sites.
During his career as an elected official of the Australian Workers’ Union, he was involved in workplace negotiations to improve wages and conditions for West Australian workers; Stephen has also served as a volunteer with the West Dardanup Volunteer Bushfire Brigade, Captain and Deputy Chief Bushfire Control Officer for the Shire of Dardanup and a trainer for Bushfire Brigade volunteers.

Nomenclature: Local folklore suggests that the name comes from Charles Hale who settled here in 1902 and planted a crop amongst the trees. A neighbour referred to him wanting a forest and a field at the same time and the name was later applied to the area. It is believed however, to honour John or Alexander Forrest, although their connection with the area has not been established. A Forrest Field Progress Association was formed as early as 1927 and the name is shown on plans as Forrestfield for 1944.
