Western Australia is renowned for its stunning wildflowers and the rural municipals of Morawa and Perenjori are the perfect place to base yourself when going to see them.
- There are some great food options in Morawa. You could grab lunch from the Wildflour Café or stop for dinner at the old pub.
- The main street has ample parking, with plenty of room for vehicles that are towing caravans.
- The Morawa Museum served three decades as the town’s police station, gaol and courthouse. It was dismantled in 1967 before being rebuilt in its current location.
- The museum houses vintage farm machinery and equipment, as well as a remarkable collection of windmills.
- The Monsignor Hawes Holy Cross Church can be found in Morawa. It was built using local stone and completed in 1934.
- Morawa is a registered astrotourism town, meaning it’s not only a great place to see the wildflowers but it’s a great place to see the stars as well.
- In Perenjori, you’ll find the People’s Pathway, which is a unique heritage trail that gives you some fantastic insight into life in rural Australia.
- Perenjori also has its own piece of Hawes architecture, the St Joseph’s Church.
- The Wheatbean Café is located in the middle of town. It’s a great place to immerse yourself in Perenjori’s unique charm without sacrificing your creature comforts.
- The township is just 15mins from wildflower hotspots like Koolanooka Springs and Caron Dam.
