Our Story

The Central Wheatbelt is a wonder waiting to be enjoyed. Its massive granite outcrops and spectacular views are a haven for birds, wildlife and wildflowers that delight bushwalkers, wildflower enthusiasts and photographers.

Formed in 1998, Roe Tourism Association is a collaborative, non-for-profit tourism partnership between eight Shires which collectively make up the ‘Pathways to Wave Rock’. Immersed in history, this area tells stories of our First Nations people, early settlers, and the beginnings of the areas agriculture. The Western Australian Wheatbelt is well known for its roots in agriculture – broad acre cropping, cattle, and sheep for wool and meat, and today we see some of the states most large and complex operations here.

Early explorers, such as John Septimus Roe, the Sandalwood Cutters and early settlers all camped near rocky outcrops, and million year old granites, where water and grasses were usually plentiful and are a most spectacular site to experience.
