Westonia

Western Australia

Located in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt, 316 km east of Perth, 306 km west of Kalgoorlie and 55 km east of Merredin. The shire of Westonia is renowned for its stunning natural woodlands, breathtaking granite outcrops, beautiful wildflower and vast open skies.

The town was originally named Weston after Alfred David Weston who discovered gold at Boodalin Soak in December 1910. It was changed to Westonia in June 1914.

As a result of the “Wolfram Street Facades” project to town’s original bank, café, hotel, fire station, boarding house and green grocer’s store have new facades and new buildings have been constructed in the style of the 1920’s. The town is an operational modern entity with a 1920’s pub, a 1920’s Shire of Westonia office building and an exceptional museum.
