Trayning is a small agricultural town located two and a half hours’ drive east of Perth. The name originated from the Trayning Well, derived from the Aboriginal word ‘During’ meaning ‘snake in the grass by the campfire’.
The search for gold in this area also unearthed an unusual finger-like projection of white quartz named Whiteman, a popular visitor attraction.
Trayning has a 25 metre swimming pool and two 18 hole golf courses. Other attractions include the annual Tractor Pull Mud Bog & Burnout, Billyacatting Flora and Fauna Reserve and the National Trust Mangowine Homestead.
For meals and refreshments visit the hotel/motel in Trayning. There is accommodation available at a caravan park, hotel and a farm stay.
