CEO Dirk Sellenger shares what makes the Shire of Mukinbudin a great place to work and live.
Three and a half hours North East of Perth sits the Shire of Mukinbudin, a rural community best known for wheat and sheep farming.
It’s a fantastic destination for those who love the outdoors – bring your 4WD, set up camp for a couple of days and explore the surrounding area.
The Botanical Walk Trail entices visitors from August to October with wildflowers in bloom, amongst the native flora and fauna of the region.
Beringbooding Rock is an impressive sight to see while in the region – it’s the largest rock water catchment tank in Australia, built in 1937 and holding over two million gallons of water.
Shire of Mukinbudin CEO Dirk Sellenger says Beringbooding Rock is a big tourist attraction for the area - “It has fantastic rock walks, aboriginal cave paintings and large gnamma holes” he says.
The area has picnic and free camping facilities with easy caravan access, BBQ's, interpretative signage and a marked walk trail. There’s also Elachbutting Rock nearby with its vibrant red and burgundy colours.
On your drive through the region you’ll pass through bright yellow canola fields, great for photo opportunities. “Next time you want to get away and explore the wide-open spaces, we look forward to seeing you in Mukinbudin” says Dirk.
