Welcome to the Hidden Treasures of the Great Southern

Hidden Treasures covers eight Shires in the northern and south-eastern parts of the Great Southern region of Western Australia, 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.
