The Stories of Us: The Narrogin Heritage Walk Trail is the Shire of Narrogin's commitment to the conservation and celebration of Narrogin’s heritage buildings.
Historian Maurie White’s booklet “Timescape” gives an account of a 1998 Townscape Project which revived community appreciation and enthusiasm for the value of Narrogin’s heritage buildings, their contribution to the character of the streetscape and the local history that they represent. These early buildings stand as a monument to the times and people of another era.
Maurie White wrote Timescape as a guide for a walk around the main streets of Narrogin. The heritage walk however over the years has never been recognised and celebrated with interpretive signage.
The Narrogin Heritage Walk Trail reactivates significant sections of the Heritage Walk described in Timescape. The entire project delivers 25 interpretive signs in anodized sketched aluminium on stylish pedestal posts installed as strategic points or nodes in the CBD, complete with trail directional markers and a trail head sign located outside the visitor centre.
The 1,250 metre stroll through the Narrogin CBD is designed for one-way travel in a clockwise direction however it can be joined anywhere along the route. The Shire produced a Stories of Us brochure which includes a trail map that can be collected from the Dryandra Country Visitor Centre or Arts Narrogin.
Alternatively, you can download the brochure here.
