In the heart of the Wheatbelt, Kellerberrin inspires wildflower enthusiasts with flora-filled woodlands and heaths, photographers with curious rock formations, history buffs with agricultural heritage and visiting international artists with a taste of true Australian rural life.
A two and a half hour drive east of Perth along the Great Eastern Highway brings you to Kellerberin. It's one of the first must-stops along the 650 kilometre Golden Pipeline HeritageTrail, following the path and story of this feat of engineering, which has supplied water to the Goldfields for over a century.
If you're travelling between August and November, be sure to take the Trayning/Bencubbin Road to Durokoppin Reserve where woodlands and heath put on displays of wildflowers, from wattle to grevillea.
To get a good view of the surrounding countryside, you have plenty of vantage points to choose from. Head for nearby Kellerberrin Hill and the Golden Pipeline Lookout. Take a picnic to the dramatic granite outcrops of Mount Stirling and Mount Caroline. Or scale Western Australia's third largest monocline - Kokerbin Rock, where the road leads you to the summit and an array of rock formations, including mini Wave Rock, Dog Rock and Devils Marbles.
The best way to take in the treasures of the town is to follow the Kellerberrin Heritage Trail passing fine examples of 19th and early 20th century architecture, including the post office, St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, Massingham House and the fire station. Entering Pioneer Park, a collection of old farming implements and machinery create an interesting backdrop for the Folk Museum, where you can view local memorabilia in the town's original agricultural hall.
Heading back to the main street, be sure to call in at the International Art Space Kellerberrin Australia (IASKA). This unique contemporary art gallery invites international artists to immerse themselves in Australian rural life and create original artworks based on their experiences. Much of the work created and displayed here proceeds to grace the walls of larger venues throughout Australia and overseas.
