Wheatbelt

The Wheatbelt is home to one of Western Australia’s most visited attractions, The Pinnacles Desert.

There is much mystery surrounding these 150,000 limestone structures and whether they are sea shell residue, the remains of an old forest or the ruins of an ancient city. 

Also located within The Wheatbelt is the world-famous Wave Rock – a 15-metre high multicoloured granite formation resembling a giant wave that runs more than 100 metres in length. 

The Wave Rock site hosts Hyden’s Wave Rock Weekender, one of many festivals on the calendar that contribute to The Wheatbelt’s vibrant arts, cultural and sporting scene, along with the Kulin Bush Races and the world-class Avon Descent. 

The Wheatbelt is made up of more than 200 communities and boasts a rich heritage and cultural diversity.
