Dowerin is a scenRusty_Sepia.jpgic two hour drive along Pioneers Pathway (north east of Perth) and a real escape from the hussle and bustle of city life. Whether you visit for a couple of hours or a couple of days,  sit back and enjoy the serenity of the Central Wheatbelt. There's plenty to do for all the family; take a picnic in Dowerin's Centenary Park, enjoy a walk in the bush through the Tin Dog Creek Nature Reserve or why not take advantage of our high quality shops and services located within the heart of the townsite from Monday to midday Saturday.

Follow the Wheatbelt Way Drive Trial through many North Eastern Wheatbelt communities including Dowerin to see their natural attractions, history and heritage.

See the link www.wheatbeltway.com.au for more info.
