Map of Wheatbelt


The Central Wheatbelt area covers an area of approximately 85,000 square kilometres. The population is widely dispersed across the region, with major service centres at Narrogin, Northam, Merredin and Moora, with an economy based largely on agriculture.

It is a charming region of small farming communities dotted over a landscape of wheat fields and sheep pasture. The environment of the Wheatbelt is quite varied. The Avon region close to Perth is known for its lush environment, thanks to its relatively high rainfall. The coastal region supports fishing and aquaculture, while the warm, dry inland areas are suited to agricultural industries such as wheat and sheep farming.

The region has extensive educational, health, recreational and cultural services and is home to the C Y O'Connor College of TAFE and Curtin University's Muresk Institute of Agriculture. The region also offers affordable housing and business premises.

More than 40 doctors work in the region, mostly in private practice.
