Less than 10 kms away from the town Korrelocking Reserve is a nature reserve, with granite outcrops and open space. Bring the family here for a picnic or to enjoy the quietness.  In Spring the ground is covered with everlastings making a colourful display. Take the road to Trayning and follow the signage.

You can access a map here.

Although in the Tammin Shire, Yorkrakine Rock is well worth a visit. It is a large outcrop of granite which towers over the surrounding countryside. It is said that John Forest started a pile of rocks on the top when he climbed it. You can add to it!  Orchids and everlastings can be found in spring and after rain tadpoles abound. A great place for a picnic with toilets on site and lots of room to run play and kick a football Yorkie Rock forms part of the Granite Way

Wyalkatchem CBH Agricultural Museum is very popular with tourists and caravanners. There is  a substantial amount of machinery here and a walk through the museum can take an hour at least for the enthusiast. 

You can view their website here.

Walk back in time to the Wyalkatchem Schoolhouse Museum. Located in Gamble Street, the museum houses a school room, radio equipment, and has rooms done up as they would have been in a house in earlier times. A very interesting glimpse into the past.  The Schoolhouse Museum is open by appointment. Phone (08) 9681 1036

The Walk-a Wyal Trail was created to let locals and visitors enjoy the bush around Wyalkatchem. Located at the east end of Piesse Street, there are three different tracks designated by red, blue and yellow triangles. Orchids can be seen in spring if you look hard enough.

Lake Cowcowing

Located 20 ish kilometres towards Koorda on the old Koorda Road is Lake Cowcowing. This is a salt lake, a lovely place to take a walk. If there has been a good rainfall the lake fills up and skiiing and kayaking are popular pursuits. Last time the lake was full was 2006

Wells of Wyalkatchem

Wells that were built in the Wyalkatchem area played a large part in the early years of settlement of the district. As well as being used for pastoral reasons they were  essential for travellers especially those heading to the goldfields via the  Yarragin Road, where they were part of a network of wells and homesteads. Find  more information on Wyalkatchem Wells, their location and history   here

As well as the above, Wyalkatchem has clean air, open spaces, heritage buildings, murals, friendly people
and is only a two and a half hour drive from Perth.
Come and see why it is the town with the  "strange name, beaut place" motto!
