NUNGARIN

Nungarin is the first of the small towns on Wheatbelt Loop road heading to Northam from Merridan. Nungarin services a rich wheat production area. Of recent times from an economic perspective the town is struggling.

In October 1910, 1,486 acres (6.01 km2) at Avon Location 14227 and 14230 were set aside as a townsite reserve along the Dowerin to Merredin railway. The townsite itself was gazetted in 1912.

 The Military Museum is the main reason to visit Nungarin and is open most times.

The Nungarin Hotel is over 100 years old and is a great classic pub.

The Nungarin War Memorial an appropriate acknowledgment.

The Nungarin Catholic and Anglican Churches are modest and mid century buildings.

If the timing is right refreshment at the hotel may be in order. A diversion to the Wheatbelt loop is not necessary.
