Visitor Information

Dowerin is a one stop shop for visitors and is only a 2 hour scenic drive from the city along the Pioneers Pathway and the Wheatbelt Way. Dowerin is surrounded by farmland, native reserves, heritage buildings and sites and wildflowers when the season is right.

Pose for a photo with Rusty, experience how the settlers lived and delve into pioneering history at the Dowerin Museum, take a stroll along Tin Dog Creek Walk Trail or sit back, breathe in that country air and watch the world go by with a visit to Centenary Park.

Set in the heart of the Wheatbelt Dowerin lies 156km north east of Perth, upon arrival you will be greeted by Rusty our tin dog who stands guard at the Western entrance to town proudly representing the spirit and ingenuity of this small rural community.

The students helped with Rusty’s initial design, sourced funding for his materials and employed an artist to build him.

Dowerin has a range of services including banking, a school, retail and light industry, mechanics, a tyre shop and top class recreational facilities.
