Where

Merredin is the main Agricultural hub in the Central Wheatbelt, roughly midway between Perth and Kalgoorlie, on Route 94, Great Eastern Highway.  The town’s name is derived from the Aboriginal word “merrit-in” the place of the merrit tree, a eucalypt used to make spears.

Westonia is small, charming, mine town, rich in history. Ideal for a lunch stop on the way to Baladjie Rock.
