Dowerin

Dowerin has long been a popular stop for visitors to the Wheatbelt. Head to Tin Dog Creek for a cooling dip, as the Goldfields prospectors once did. Delve into pioneering history, marvel at modern agriculture at the Machinery Field Days, meet Rusty the dog who stands guard over the town, or explore myriad natural attractions against a backdrop of colourful spring wildflowers.

The two hour and 10 minute drive east of Perth along the Pioneers Pathway will bring you to Dowerin. This scenic self-drive tour winds through Wheatbelt farmland and towns, passing wide open vistas and nature walks, lakes and granite outcrops, pioneering heritage buildings and museums.

While you're retracing the footsteps of pioneers, stop at nearby Tin Dog Creek. A vital watering hole for prospectors in the past, today it offers a great spot for a picnic, a refreshing dip or a stroll through pristine bushland to discover a wide variety of native flora and fauna.

Visit between July and October and you'll be dazzled by the blooms of colourful wildflowers - Namelcatchem Reserve and Minnivale Reserve are also top spots to view this seasonal phenomenon.

Head back to the town and step back to the late 1800s with a walk through Dowerin's pioneering heritage along the Heritage Walk Trail, making time to visit the furnished 1915 cottage and artefacts at Dowerin District Museum, which paints a vivid picture of settler life.

For a 21st century view of Dowerin, catch the Machinery Field Days at the end of August - a popular event showcasing the very latest in agricultural machinery, technology and rural services.

To make Dowerin your base, choose from the town's hotel, motel and caravan accommodation.

Dowerin Museum


The Dowerin Museum offers visitors an opportunity to see what life on the wheatbelt was like in the 1930s.

The house was built in 1912 and owned by the O'Shaughnessy family. The local historical society has preserved it as a typical example of a Western Australian wheatbelt home of the 1920s.

The Museum consists of a saddlery shop along with other artefacts from earlier times including a vast amount of interesting furniture and clothing.
