Mullewa Visitor Information
Mullewa is a wheatbelt town in the Mid-West Region of Western Australia, approximately 450 kilometres north of Perth, the state capital. Rising 281 meters above sea level, the locale features a semi-arid climate. The site is believed to have been named after Mullewa Spring (a nearby water source), whose name in the local Aboriginal language is thought to mean "a place of fog".
While Mullewa saw its first European settlers in 1869, it was not until 1894 that it was officially declared a town. Governed locally by the City of Greater Geraldton LGA, the locale is represented in the Legislative Assembly of Western Australia by the Electoral District of Moore, and by the Federal Division of Durack in the Australian House of Representatives. It has an estimated population of 425 residents.
Considered the gateway to vast pastoral and mining areas, Mullewa has a number of features that locals and visitors alike can enjoy. Some of the town's most notable cultural, historical, and natural attractions are Butterabby Grave, De Grey-Mullewa Stock Route, Monsignor John Hawes Heritage Trail, Mullewa Agricultural Show, and Mullewa Annual Wildflower Show.
