The first bulk wheat bins were built in the district and a 1936 Bin is preserved within a heritage listed railway precinct as an agricultural and transport museum in the town.
The two museums in town display the districts farming and pioneering heritage and a visit to Korrelocking Reserve for a picnic and walk trail is a must, particularly during the wildflower season. A leisurely drive or walk through the town will reveal heritage buildings and a unique memorial park. Three walk trails through bushland start at the north end of town.
The Heritage and Roses Festival is held over 3 days each October and the WA State Hang Gliding Championships are held each year in late January/ early February, the area is also popular with many hang gliders during the weekend.
