"Welcome to the Hidden Treasures of the Great Southern"
This website is a visitor's guide to the magnificent Hidden Treasures of the Great Southern. The Great Southern Region of Western Australia is a top tourist destination featuring many natural scenic attractions, wildlife, heritage, wildflowers and genuine country hospitality. Many visitors find the Great Southern Region a touring surprise and delight and we welcome all visitors to come and enjoy the Great Southern with us.
Grand old homesteads, from an era when the country relied on the 'sheep's back', to huge grain operations that showcase modern agriculture; all are mixed in with boutique produce, great scenery and warm country charm.
"We welcome all visitors to come and enjoy the Great Southern with us."
Hidden Treasures covers eight Shires in the northern and south-eastern parts of the Great Southern, communities predominantly recognized for the primary industry of agriculture. Steeped in the heritage of WA's early settlers, this sometimes overlooked area of Western Australia has a new outlook, offering tourists and visitors a unique glimpse of the real backbone of our farming communities.
Tourist information, holiday accommodation... you'll find it all here!
There are visitor information centres, shire offices and telecentres where you can pick up tourist information throughout the area, and accommodation choices to suit all travelers.
If you are planning a caravan holiday, there are no less than 10 caravan parks in the region. Other holiday accommodation choices include farm stays, bed and breakfasts, backpackers, self-contained units, hotels and motels.
