Shire of Williams CEO Geoff McKeown takes you on a tour of the town.
Only a short two-hour drive from Perth, Williams is a bustling rural town and an ideal weekender destination.
Situated halfway on the drive to Albany or Denmark, Williams Woolshed is a favourite amongst travellers. Grab a coffee and a home-made pie and browse the locally made goods in the adjoining shops. The town also boasts a number of cafes, shops and Williams Lions Park, a popular nature play area for kids.
A little out of town, Dryandra is a great spot for camping, hiking and spotting local wildlife. Set up camp at the Congelin or Gnaala Mia campgrounds and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the City lights.
While you’re there, check out the Barna Mia Animal Sanctuary, which offers a night tour where you can see native nocturnal animals.
Shire of Williams CEO Geoff McKeown says one of the attractions to come to the area is to spot the elusive and rare Numbat. “We've got the Numbat, it’s one of the few places in Western Australia where they still live in the wild” he says.
“If you’re coming through Williams, stop and enjoy what we have to offer” says Geoff.
