General:
Perenjori derives from the Aboriginal word “Perangery” meaning water hole and is surrounded by a rich wheat and sheep area that is only a short distance from mining and station country.
Perenjori is in the heart of wildflower country and every spring the countryside is a blaze of colour. View endless vistas of pink yellow and white everlastings from July to October, and be in awe of the unique Wreath Leschenaultia in September and October.
Founded as a town in 1916 Perenjori offers a relaxed stop over for travellers, whether at a powered site under shady trees or self contained chalet at the caravan park or a comfortable room at the historic hotel.
