Welcome to the Shire of Corrigin

Visitor Attractions

Corrigin is situated in the Central Wheatbelt approximately 2.5 hours from Perth, the capital of Western Australia. The kind of atmosphere you can expect to experience in Corrigin is one of relaxed friendliness and pride, as well as the hustle and bustle of farming activities and daily life.

We encourage you to stop and have a look at what we have to offer, even if only for a couple hours – we know you will not be disappointed with what you encounter.

Dog CemeteryDog Cemetery

Established in 1974, the Dog Cemetery is a tribute to Mans Best Friend. With over 80 loved ones now buried, the cemetery is unique to Corrigin and worth a visit. Take time to read some of the headstones, which are all made and maintained by a local resident.

Located 5kms out of town on the Brookton Highway, the cemetery is landmarked by a statue of a large dog. Any person is welcome to bury their dog at the cemetery; though contact with the Shire office must be made first. You can call the office on (08) 9063 2203.

Wildflowers & Wildlife

Like most rural areas, Corrigin experiences some beautiful sights during the wildflower season, which is usually in September/October every year. The Lookout and Wildflower Walk located on the Brookton Highway, 5km out of the townsite heading to Perth (signposted) is one of the best locations to seek out these wonderful sights, however you will also be lucky enough to see them in the road verges and reserves throughout the whole shire. If you would like further information on the types of Wildflowers or the Wildflower Walk, please contact Robin Campbell on 9065 7890 or robincampbell@westnet.com.au
