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.
