Corrigin Australia


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 east of Perth; Corrigin is a very attractive, tidy wheat belt town. Tour the surrounding countryside during wildflower season to see vibrant colours stretching to the horizon. The local cafe sells local hand made crafts, coffee, fresh home made food, cakes, biscuits and pizza. The Corrigin Pioneer 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. Established in 1974, the Dog Cemetery is a tribute to Mans Best Friend. With over 80 loved ones now buried, the cemetery is unique to Corrigin and worth a visit. Take time to read some of the headstones, which are all made and maintained by a local resident. Kunjin Animal Farm is located 18 kilometres west of Corrigin on the Brookton Highway. Visitors can see and touch animals such as alpacas, emus, deer, ostriches, miniature donkeys, boer goats, sheep, cattle, geese and more. Accommodation includes a motel, hotel and caravan park.
