Can you believe how fast it feels like this year is going! Perth has experienced some bitterly cold weather fronts lately, so who is ready for some sunshine? I know I am! We generally associate warm weather, sunshine and hot Aussie summer days with the beach, but if its hot weather, Australian outback history with a hint of agriculture and a touch of mining that interest you, then places like New Norica, Dalwallinu, Mount Magnet, Cue, Meekatharra and Newman should be on your itinerary!
New Norcia: Founded in 1847 by 2 Spanish Benedictine Monks. Except for the Australian bush, you could be excused for thinking you're walking through a village in Europe surrounded by the magnificent architecture. The town has worn many hats in history and provided a mission, a monastery, a school and even now, a place of spiritual sanctuary.
Dalwallinu: This quiet little wheat belt town is best known for its remarkable wildflower displays from July to October and marks the beginning of WA’s famous Wildflower Way.
Mt Magnet: As one of the Mid West regions original mining towns, Mt Magnet has endured to become the longest gold mining settlement in WA, with open cut mining still in operation today. The Mount Magnet Mining and Pastoral Museum is a great insight into the history surrounding the area. The Rock display is also a visitor favourite.
Cue: From 19th century buildings to 10,000 year old Aboriginal rock art, the peaceful town of Cue is surrounded by the allure of history. A true Outback town, coloured with an assortment of red hues, make a magnificent backdrop for the wildflower season between July and October. If you are interested in astrology, Cue has magnificent uninterrupted views of the night sky, making it an ideal location for star gazing and night time photography.
Meekatharra: A Yamatji word meaning “place of little water”, Meekatharra is the largest shire in the Murchison. There are plenty of walking and discovery trails, a museum and an abundance of history to this town. It is also a hub to the established mines and mineral exploration companies for resources such as stores, fuel and other convenience services.
Newman: Sits on the traditional lands of the Nyiyarparli people. The Martu people are the present custodians. Not only is it a resource mining town, it is a significant regional centre which has many services available for travelers such as a shopping precinct, restaurants, hotels, motels, a recreation centre and swimming pool. The countryside is striking with blue, green and red colours of the outback, natural waterholes, early aboriginal art sites and plenty of Australian plant and wildlife.
