Taking its name from the Tammar, a small marsupial, Tammin was the original site of the wells and dams used by Charles Hunt along his early exploration route. Hunts Well is a historical site located a few kilometres south of the town. Travel 26 kilometres north of Tammin and you'll encounter an unusual granite outcrop standing 341 metres high – it’s an excellent spot for rock climbing. The nearby Charles Gairdner National Park puts on an impressive display of colourful wildflowers and is well worth the detour during spring and winter.
