CEO Gavin Treasure describes what it’s like to live and work in the Shire of Dumbleyung.
The Shire of Dumbleyung is three hours drive south-east of Perth nestled between the Great Southern and South West regions on the southern tip of the Wheatbelt.
The area is much more than just its name-sake Lake that was thrust into the international spotlight in 1964 when Donald Campbell set the world water speed record on its smooth water.
Although there is a dedicated tourist experience to that iconic event, including a replica of the famous boat the Bluebird, there are many other visitor attractions including indigenous cultural tours and diverse agriculture such as yabby farming.
The Shire is a major player in Western Australia’s agricultural industry being a large annual cereal crop producer.
The people are described as passionate and dedicated to their community.
CEO Gavin Treasure invites everyone to the Shire. “Do yourself a favour and the next time you are in the region, drop into the Shire of Dumbleyung as there are plenty of things to do, visit and experience. It will be well worth it”
