Western Australia

Located approximately 194km north-east of Perth. Wylie is known as the ‘Beaut place’ with the ‘Strange name.’ The economy of the Shire is predominantly reliant on agriculture, wheat and sheep farming. Pioneering construction of bulk grain facilities occurred in the district laying claim to being the ‘Cradle of Bulk Handling.’ The original grain elevators were restored and now present the entrance on the two main roads into town.

The Town was thought to be named after the Wyalkatchem Tank which was built by sandalwood cutters in 1881. The region is in some of Western Australia’s best wildflower country.

The town lies on the Pioneer’s Pathway – the old Goldfields Track which was the route taken by fortune seekers making their way toward Kalgoorlie Boulder.
