Bencubbin and Beacon are located three and a half hours' drive northeast of Perth in the centre of Western Australia’s North East Wheatbelt.
The name Bencubbin comes from an Aboriginal word for Mt Marshall. The town of Bencubbin is the main centre of the Shire. There are many original buildings in the town including the hotel, Sandalwood Shops, Bank of NSW, old Police station and Bencubbin school that were all built between 1911 and 1929.
