Quairading is located about 170 kilometres east of Perth in Western Australia's Wheatbelt. The town derived its name from the Aboriginal word 'Kwirading', meaning the home of a small bush kangaroo.
The Quairading Nature Reserve covers 527 hectares of unique remnant vegetation that includes a diverse mixture of woodland forests and native shrubland. The open woodland areas of the Reserve have outstanding examples of wandoo, york and salmon gum forests that are unique to the Central Wheatbelt.
The Quairading District Heritage Trail starts in the townsite of Dangin and helps visitors gain insight into Quairading's early history.
Toapin Weir is an early example of a reticulated water system from a rock catchment being used for farm properties. Completed in 1912, the weir is still in use as a water supply.
The Pink Lake in Quairading is regarded locally as a natural phenomenon. At certain times of the year, one side of the lake becomes dark pink, while the other side remains a light pink colour.
Toapin Rise Farm is Quairading's newest attraction operated by sisters Ros and Tarns who personally host all visitors through their grove and olive oil tastings. Visitors get to wander through the olive trees and learn about how the trees are cared for, how the olives are harvested and how the trees are pruned.
Hotel, motel and the Shire of Quairading Caravan Park accommodation is available.
NATURE RESERVE - today is the 15th of the month which means there's a guided walk happening - this month meeting at the Golf Club car park at 10.00 am. We reckon that if you are lucky enough to sight one of these beautiful creatures it will be spine tingling.
