Why Morawa

If you are looking to get out of the rat race and move to a more enjoyable balanced lifestyle, then Morawa is the place to be. Morawa is a family-orientated town with a strong sense of community. It is located less than 4 hours north of Perth, about 1 ½ hours from Geraldton, and only an hour from Dongara’s fabulous beaches. With benefits of a small country town Morawa is an ideal location for young families, entrepreneurs, and retiree’s alike. There is easy access to excellent educational facilities (from childcare ages through to high school and beyond) and access to local doctors, a modern hospital and regular dental service visits. Morawa is a town where children still play in the streets, people know their neighbours, and people regularly get together at the various clubs to have a game or just to catch up socially.

Morawa has a rich agricultural and mining history which has helped to develop the community over the years. Tourism is another key draw card for Morawa particularly across the Wildflower season during the months of July to October. Astro-tourism is a growing area that is starting to attract more visitors to the region who come to enjoy our amazing dark sky.

This is another great value add to our other attractions such as our museum and historic churches throughout the town. The Shire of Morawa is also actively working on developing a multi-use Trail network in the Koolanooka Hills – for more information about this exiting project please visit https://www.morawa.wa.gov.au/trails-project.aspx
