Shire President Barry West tells us why he loves living in Kulin, a small town with a big community feel.
If you’re looking for somewhere to stop on your way from Perth to Esperance, The Shire of Kulin is a great spot to explore. Situated in the centre of WA’s Wheatbelt, Kulin is a small country town with a big community feel.
The ever-popular Kulin Bush Races are held the first weekend in October, with people from all across the state in attendance. It’s a not-for profit event where all funds raised go back into the community.
If you’ve already seen Wave Rock in Hyden, not far down the road you’ll find Buckley’s Breakaway, a large rock formation with spectacular white cliffs – great for photo opportunities.
The Tin Horse Highway is the route to take to keep the kids entertained - spot the quirky, colourful, community-created art installations along the side of the highway.
“Make sure you come out and visit the Tin Horse Highway, which starts about here, goes right out to where our bush races event is run, we also have Blazing Swan out there” says Shire President Barry West.
In the summer months, Kulin is also a good place to cool off - It’s home to the biggest waterslide in regional WA.
“We've got things like Jilakin Rock, Buckley's Breakaway and now we've got RV camping which is free, so come and visit Kulin and you won't be disappointed” says Barry.
