Dalwallinu and Wubin are sheep and wheat farming towns located three hours' drive north of Perth in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region. The Wheatbelt town of Wubin is just 20 kilometres north of Dalwallinu and is the gateway to the pastoral country.
Drive into the pastoral country around Wubin during August and September to experience the seasonal wildflower display of everlastings that bloom following the winter rains. On the way look for the very unusual Leschenaultia Macrantha; a flower in the shape of a wreath, this can be viewed dependent on the season.
Six kilometres east of Wubin on the Great Northern Highway are Wubin Rocks which are well known as a local picnic area.
The Heritage Wheatbin Museum depicts Wubin's grain growing history through pictorial photos, with the emphasis on bulk handling and displaying the machinery involved in this farming revolution. The old wheatbin sits side by side with today's modern storage bins.
