Dowerin is located 156 kilometres north-east of Perth on the Pioneers’ Pathway, a popular tourist route in the central wheat belt region of Western Australia. In 1906, the government extended the railway from Goomalling to the developing Dowerin Agricultural Area and decided to develop a town at the bustling terminal, and as a result Dowerin was officially gazetted in 1907.
Those visiting Dowerin can find short term parking at the Field Day Site, located on Memorial Ave. There are no fees to stay here, and parking is strictly limited to self-contained vehicles only for up to 24 hours. A dump point can be found on Stewart Street, and potable water can be obtained a long Redding Rd.
Whilst in Dowerin, you will come across many interesting sites to visit, such as ‘Rusty’ the Tin Dog found at the west entrance to Dowerin, the threatened species garden found in the main street, or the ‘Sundial’ positioned centrally within the town square. If visiting in August, be sure to check out the Dowerin GWN Field Days, renowned as one of the biggest rural events in Western Australia. The Field Day showcases agricultural and associated equipment, as well as provides information and services to people from rural areas.
