Welcome to Wickepin

#faceycountry #beststeaksandwich2015

Albert Facey’s ‘A Fortunate Life’ and the Homestead can all be found in one place. Wickepin.

We are located 210kms South East of Perth. Our Shire is made up of five distinct areas – Wickepin, Yealering, Harrismith, Tincurrin and Toolibin. View our tourist brochure here.

We have unique wildflowers. Big skies. Lakes. The Swan River springs from here, beginning as the Avon River. So does the Blackwood River. We have the endangered Freckled Duck. And the Spider Orchid. We also have sheep. And the Best Regional Steak Sandwich.

We boast rural living at its best with essential services close to hand. Excellent educational, medical and recreational facilities and community programs are available.

720. The number of people in our Shire. The number of backpackers that have stayed for a while. Half the annual number of visitors to the Albert Facey Homestead.

We may be lacking in numbers but not opportunity.
