WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
Morawa is a Shire with the scenic beauty and ambiance of a truly agricultural district only three and a half hours from the city of Perth. The shire of Morawa has many attractions, both historic and modern, that make it a wonderful and welcoming place to visit.
Undoubtedly the most popular time to visit Morawa and its surrounding region is during the wildflower season, from late winter through to early October. At this time of year caravans and campers come from far and wide to see the landscape at its most spectacular and to experience our mild winter climate.
Beyond the town boundary, you can take in carpets of wildflowers, the colours of the broadacre agricultural crops and the Koolanooka mine, but there is also plenty to see within the Morawa townsite.
The Morawa Museum’s historic windmill collection is the only large, public display in the whole of Australia and the historic buildings scattered throughout town tell their own tales. There are public art displays, the Morawa Town Square and numerous other things to do and places to visit, not to mention a more than welcoming local community.
