Things to do in the Wheatbelt

The next time you Wander Out Yonder, why not explore the inland treasures on offer in the Wheatbelt? From breathtaking landscapes and rock formations to quirky art installations and even quirkier locals, there’s something for everyone. Since there’s so much on offer, here’s where you can check out part two of this article. Let’s get started.

Historic towns: Beautiful Beverley

If old-timey towns are your thing, be sure to add Beverley to your itinerary. Hop on the Heritage Trail to take in some of Beverley’s historic buildings and landmarks. For a spot of culture, the Beverley Railway Station displays the Beverley Council Art Collection—as well as local artists, artists-in-residence, and regular performances at the Platform Theatre.

Not only that, the station was awarded the Heritage Council Prize of WA for the incredible restoration project, completed in 2007. Not only is it an impressive example of Tudor Victorian architecture, it’s a fun place to stop, shop, and explore.

Grow in Narembeen

Narembeen is a an agricultural hub, nestled inland in the Western Australian Wheatbelt. Thought to be the only town in Australia to come into existence so a pub could be built – (and there is a story there…) today Narembeen is home to a thriving community, which welcomes visitors to it numerous attractions.

If you’re feeling outdoorsy, the Wadderin Wildlife Sanctuary is a safe home to many species of uncommon creatures. Get up close and personal with Red-tailed Phascogale, Brush-tailed Bettong and Malleefowl in their fox and cat-free haven.

For the adventurous, take a dip (or go for a rip) on the Wakeman Ski Lake. A popular spot for both locals and visitors, it’s a great place to cool off.
