Corrigin is a popular stopover when visiting Hyden’s Wave Rock and the seasonal wildflowers of the area. Located two and a half hours’ drive south-east of Perth, it is a very attractive, tidy Wheatbelt town.
Corrigin is widely known as a ‘Town of Windmills’ due to the abundant supply of ground water. Almost every home had a windmill until 1960 when the town was supplied with scheme water.
Tour the surrounding countryside during wildflower season to see vibrant colours stretching to the horizon.
The craft shop sells local hand made crafts, fresh home baked cookies, ceramics, corn dollies, sewing, Devonshire teas, pottery, and the well known local Yabbies (a unique freshwater crustacean, like a mini lobster).
The Corrigin Museum provides a link with the past in its display of early Australian farm machinery. The Miniature Railway and Steam Train are available for rides.
Visit the Corrigin Dog Cemetery, an unusual pet cemetery dedicated to man's best friend.
Accommodation includes a motel, B&B, farmstay and caravan park.
