MOORA

Heading east from the coast there are some somewhat remote rural centres to pick. The first to qualify under the Bustout criteria is Moora. Moora is a really nice place and staying over at the town is highly recommended.

Moora is the centre of a rich wheat belt growing area and community pride is clearly on display.

In March 1999, the town suffered a major flood when ex-Tropical Cyclone Elaine caused the Moore River to break its banks with the evacuation of 1000 people.

The town is the most substantial wheat belt town between Geraldton and Perth. The town provides facilities and services such as commercial banks, schools, commerce and retail sectors, community recreational facilities; plus a Pharmacy, Dentist, Doctors and District Hospital.

Moora is often a popular stopover for tourists en route to holiday destinations and those following the wildflower trail.

The two Moora Hotels are classic 100 year buildings.

The Moora Churches are a delight to behold, all being over 100 years old.

The Moora Historical Society is active.

The Moora War Memorial is one of the better acknowledgments for a town of this size one will come across.

Be sure to stay over.
