CEO Peter Webster explains why the Shire of Wagin is a great place to visit.
The Shire of Wagin is famous for its Big Ram, but there is much more to see and do when visiting, explains Shire CEO, Peter Webster.
“There's always something going on, from the jets at the airport to a number of events up on the showground”.
The Wagin Historical Village is open seven days a week, is run by volunteers and is well worth a visit. If history is your thing, you’ll also enjoy the many historical buildings that are located in Wagin town itself.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, there is plenty to explore. Puntapin Rock is located within the Shire and is worth the climb for the view from the top. Parkeyerring Nature Reserve is located 7km south of Wagin township and has several salt-water lakes.
The annual Wagin Woolarama is the most important date in the local community’s calendar, and the Council contribute to it and associated events. Held in March, it is a showcase of agricultural life in this part of WA.
Whether you visit the Shire of Wagin as part of a caravanning holiday, or are just passing through, Mr Webster urges you to stop and explore a little - “I'm sure you'll have a great time while you're here”.
