Narrogin is the commercial centre of the Wheatbelt South area and is a great base to explore the region. The town is surrounded by rich agricultural land and many nature reserves. Wildflowers attract many visitors during spring. There is a good choice of self drive routes enabling viewing of many different wildflowers in and around the area which are easily accessible from Narrogin. Visit a local winery or explore the rich history of the town and surrounds.
Narrogin is said to derive its name from a small pool which the local Aboriginal people called ‘Gnargajin’ meaning ‘place of water’. During the 1860s and 1870s, shepherds and sandalwood cutters drew water from the pool and, when the railway was built between Beverley and Albany in the 1880s, Narrogin’s reliable water supply was an important drawcard.
