Morawa is a sheep and wheat farming town right in the heart of wildflower country in the Western Australian Wheatbelt, four and a half hours’ drive north of Perth. From August to October, the region puts on a stunning display of colourful and unusual outback wildflowers, including orchids, native foxgloves, grevillea, acacias, wreath flowers and carpets of everlastings.
The area was first settled around 1905 and Morawa was declared a town in 1912. It was once home to the iron ore mine that supplied the first iron ore to be exported from Western Australia.
Morawa accommodation options include the Shire of Morawa Caravan Park, hotel/motel, B&B, caravan park, farm stays and historic Mellenbye Station Stay is approx 47km north of town. The town also has a pub and a quaint shopping precinct.
