General:
Green in winter and golden in summer, Dowerin has a unique spirit that has grown with the town over it’s 100 years of settlement, nurturing a vibrant, innovative and supportive community that only a small country town in the heart of the Wheatbelt can offer.
Dowerin offers an array of attractions all year round, providing an entertaining and informative experience for any visitor. Centenary Park, the Skate Park and a variety of picnic spots in the town and throughout the district provide fun & relaxation for all members of the family. A number of wells dating back 100 years provide an insight into the importance of the route now known as the Pioneers Pathway through Dowerin to the Yilgarn goldfields. A heritage walk throughout the town recognises the built environment and a visit to the Dowerin Districts Museum offers a unique view of how settlers lived in a genuine 1915 cottage including Saddler Shop. Explore the natural environment by taking the Tin Dog Creek Walking Trail for a great introduction to the plants and birds of the Wheatbelt or explore Minnivale to see an amazing variety of wildflowers from July to October.
Since 1897 agriculture has been the mainstay of the Dowerin district and its importance is celebrated at the Dowerin Field Days that takes place annually in August each year, attracting visitors from all over Western Australia, interstate and internationally.
Soon adults and children alike will experience history at the Rail Discovery Centre located in Minnivale, 18km east of Dowerin. The centre will celebrate the past with a light and sound show, operating steam train experience and interactive displays. Heritage steam and diesel locomotives will conduct trips to service community and tourist events, complete with saloon, buffet and sleeping cars. This project is operated by the Shire of Dowerin in partnership with Rail Heritage WA and supported by the Shires of Goomalling and Wyalkatchem.
