Mingenew is located in the heart of wheat belt and wildflower country on Midlands Road, five hours drive north of Perth. Nobody knows exactly what Mingenew means, some popular beliefs are either the Aboriginal work 'Mininoo' meaning place of many waters or 'minyanoo' meaning place of many ants. Walk trails taking you through beautiful areas of wildflowers (in season) are found throughout the town site. See colourful murals on town buildings, visit the museum and have a photograph taken with the giant wheat stalk sculpture in Cecil Newton Park. Mingenew is known as The Grain Centre. The Cooperative Bulk Handling (CBH) grain facility is recognised as the largest inland grower fed, receival facility in Australia. The USN Tracking Station is a ground station and part of the Universal Space Network founded by former astronaut Peter Conrad. It is the intention of the founder that data and pictures be available to the public via the internet within 15 minutes of being downloaded. Children from around the world are to have access to the space programmes under this system. Mingenew Hill is a tree covered red rock monolith. The summit affords breathtaking views of the Irwin Valley and is well worth the climb. Coalseam Conservation Park, located in close proximity to Mingenew, was the first coal deposit to be discovered in the State. In the wildflower season a carpet of pink, gold, cream and white everlastings transforms the usually sparse understorey of wattle scrub. It is a perfect spot for a picnic, or a day out discovering one of nature's most exquisite landmarks.
