The wheat belt town of Tammin is located two hours’ drive east of Perth. It derives its name from a small marsupial found in the area, the Tammar.
The huge wheat silos, which dominate the town’s skyline, were the first concrete silos built in Australia.
Hunts Well is a historical site located a few kilometres south of the town. Explorer Charles Hunt built wells and dams along his early exploration route which opened up the goldfields for future stockmen and other explorers.
An unusual granite outcrop is located 26 kilometres north of Tammin, 341 metres high it provides good climbing.
Charles Gardiner National Park, with an area of 600 hectares, is best viewed during spring and winter when it is ablaze with wildflowers.
Accommodation is available at the hotel, which also supplies meals.
